- Melt margarine in a large pot over medium-high heat. Saute onion in melted margarine until tender, about 5 minutes.
- Stir potatoes with the onion; season with cumin. Pour chicken broth over the potato mixture; bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, place cover on the pot, and cook until the potatoes are tender, 20 to 30 minutes.
- Remove pot from heat. Stir jalapeno peppers and baking soda into the broth. Stream evaporated milk into the broth while stirring.
- Mash potatoes in the pot with a potato masher until coarsely smashed; stir. Season the soup with salt and pepper. Return pot to medium-high heat and bring soup to a simmer; reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring frequently, until the soup is warmed through, about 15 minutes.
- Cook's Note:
- The baking soda helps prevent curdling when adding the milk to the hot broth.
- Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

The first time I made this recipe was according to the directions. Although really good, I wanted my soup a bit more spicy. The next time I made a few changes: two chopped onions, two cloves m...
Really excellent. We like it hot so I was liberal with the jalapenos. Worked fine. Only change I'll make next time is that directions call for WAY too much salt . Maybe it's a misprint but I...
Delicious. The only change was I added a large sweet potato in addition to the regular amount of potatoes and I added extra jalapeños because we like hot. Leftovers taste awesome in lunches.
Really good! Followed the recipe except I left the skins on the potatoes, used very little salt and added bacon bits. It was delicious! A little goes a long way...very filling!
