Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Mix potatoes, 2 containers chicken broth, jalapeno pepper, onion flakes, and minced garlic together in a large pot; bring to a boil and cook until the potatoes are softened, about 25 minutes.

  • Stir remaining carton chicken broth, cream, leeks, paprika, and dry onion soup mix into the mixture in the pot; continue cooking until thickened to your preferred consistency, about 20 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Use Cajun seasoning mix in place of the crab boil seasoning, if you like it spicier.

If you like a thicker soup, use just 2 cartons broth or add cornstarch dissolved in cold water to thicken the finished product.

Really really tasty soup. Hearty and filling. My 2 bunches of leeks totaled 5 leeks. I added salt and pepper (definitely needed S&P ). At the end I used my immersion blender to thicken up a bit. The kids were drooling over the pot with bowls in hand. This recipe makes a gracious plenty. We also topped it off with a little shredded cheddar and bacon bits:) Read More

Unfortunately the onion soup mix overpowered the lovely delicate flavour of the leeks. Next time I'll omit and use fresh chopped onion instead of the onion flakes. Read More
