  1. 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.
  2. 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.
