My husband John made this delicious soup the other night. I really love my Spiral Ham & Potato Soup, but Wow! This is even better!

How to Make Cajun Potato Soup

Step-by-Step

  1. ** You can store the remaining dry Cajun Spice Mix in an airtight container to use in other recipes.
  2. Fry bacon until crisp in a soup pot. Remove to paper towel with slotted spoon. Drain most of the bacon grease from pot.
  3. Add onion, celery & carrots into pot & saute until they sweat.
  4. Add potatoes & Cajun Spice Mix. Saute for about 2 mins.
  5. Add chicken broth, salt & pepper. Turn to medium heat to reach a slow, simmering boil for 10-15 mins until potatoes & carrots are just tender
  6. In a large bowl add the milk, then whisk flour into milk. Remove about 1/3 of potato chunks from soup pot and add to the bowl and mash well. Add this back into the soup.
  7. Stir in cream. Heat until warmed through & thickened. Ladle into bowls. Garnish with cheddar, bacon & parsley. Serve.
