Reviews for Hearty Leek and Potato Soup

The soup was okay, but a little too spicy for my husband and I. If I do make it again, I would leave the jalapeno peppers out and add the chicken broth for extra flavor.
My husband and I both loved this soup! I used chicken broth in place of the vegetable broth. Perhaps that's why we didn't notice anything missing as some reviewers have. Try it that way.
I made this soup for dinner last night, with a few modifications. I left out the jalapenos and used half chicken broth/half vegetable broth. I also add a tsp of Mrs. Dash seasonging and some fresh parsley. It was really good! Light and healthy, yet full of flavor. I love potato soup, but my husband isn't a huge fan. He really liked this one, and I will definitely make it again.
I followed this recipe as written and it seemed to be missing something. Sitting over night didn't help. Not something I would make again
I made this soup the night before I was having guests for dinner. At first I thought the soup was missing something so I added a pinch of cayenne pepper, still thought it was mising something. I refrigerated over night and reheated for dinner, it was delicious. I think the flavors just needed to come together overnight. I will make again.
