Spicy Potato Soup Recipe

Spicy Potato Soup Recipe

This recipe originally came courtesy of my sister-in-law, who is from Mexico. But since she prefers her foods much spicier that we do, I've cut back on the "heat" by reducing the amount of hot pepper sauce.— Audrey Wall, Industry, Pennsylvania
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Cook: 70 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 4 cups cubed peeled potatoes (1/2-in. cubes)
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 3 cans (8 ounces each) tomato sauce
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons pepper
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce

Directions

  • 1. In a Dutch oven, brown ground beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Add the potatoes, onion and tomato sauce. Stir in the water, salt, pepper and hot pepper sauce; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 1 hour or until the potatoes are tender and the soup has thickened. Yield: 8 servings (2 quarts).

"I liked how easy the recipe was. I did end up adding additional spices to make the soup more flavorful. I will make again but with the additional seasonings I added."

"This was okay, but nothing special. Had to add a lot of things to give it flavor. My throw together recipes are better than this. However, it's a good base recipe."

"Really good - a little too much hot sauce for us - will try 1/2 tsp of hot pepper sauce next time."

"I've been making this since the recipe was originally published years ago. No changes needed unless the heat is too much or too little for your liking. If that's the case, adjust the hot sauce and black pepper a bit. This soup and a loaf of crusty bread is a wonderful winter meal. Few things this simple taste this good!!"

"I've made this a few times. It's an easy recipe to make and tastes good, especially the next day. Like any recipe, you can alter the ingredients to your personal preferences. After my first time making it, I added some fresh salsa from the produce section at the store. I liked the change this gave the soup. Don't drain the salsa. Add the juice too for an extra zip. A friend added some spinach when she made this soup. Make some cornbread to have on the side. Perfect for a winter meal."

"This is absolutely amazing! We've made this once already this winter and we are making again tonight. We are doubling this recipe. The leftovers are great, and you can't just eat one bowl! We use Frank's RedHot Original Cayenne Pepper Sauce and when doubling will use the full 2 tsps. and the full 3 tsps. of pepper. Try it ... you won't be disappointed!"

"I was surprised something so simple to make could taste that good. I added a jalapeno and a little beef base...(Which basically are staples that I add to many things) I am sure it would have been just as tasty without those. Oh and I added a can of corn too come to think about it!...My husband Loved this soup! Some crusty rolls and dinner is on!"

MY REVIEW

"I've been making this for many years with both beef or pork sausage. Not only is it very, very simple & easy, it has so much flavor that you just can't get enough. Pairs well with crusty warm bread. I use a combination of canned tomato soup, canned diced tomatoes and fresh tomatoes. Definitely gives it more flavor. Tip: To make this faster, I steam the potatoes first in my microwave steamer (10 minutes). The hot sauce I use is all natural from the Caribbean (https://www.jcskitchen.com/p-10570-CEG-Hot-Crushed-Peppers) and test it as it cooks. I may even add some Frank's hot sauce or Cholula sauce or a combination of the three. I'd be surprised if you made this and DIDN'T like it. It's that good."

"An extreemly easy recipe. I enjoyed the soup. Instead of putting the spicy stuff in there, I put in a chili seasoning packet. It was excellent!!"

"I have made this soup for my family for years. I got it out of the 94 Taste of Home Magazine. I was very upset when it was left out of the Taste of Home Cookbook that was made for that year. Lucky I kept that magazine. My family loves this soup and I have passed it on to many others. It is great if you like spicy but don't want beans. A great substitute for chili we think. I usually double it as it is even better warmed up."

"We LOVE this recipe and it comes out of the cabinet every winter. I have the Taste of Home magazine from when this came out more than a couple of years ago. Am making it for the concession stand at the regional wrestling tournament. I'll follow the recipe for that venue, but for home, I use at least 2 tsp of the hot sauce. When we're counting points/calories, we've used non-meat crmble instead of the hamburger and it's still a great meal."

"This is one of my "go to" cold weather soups and since we don't get very many cold days here in Texas that's saying something. I've made this for several years with a few changes--I use 6 cups of potaoes (I scrub them well and don't bother to peel them), 2 onions, a large (29oz) can of tomato sauce, 2 tsp of hot pepper sauce and I throw in 2 bay leaves if I have them--everything else stays the same. So good and easy!"
