The recipe I submitted is a little bit different from what is on this site. The serrano chiles are not supposed to seeded and diced. They are supposed to be halved, with seeds. Also, there should be enough paprika to make the broth almost red-like 1 oz. The potatoes should be fried in the pot first for about 5 minutes, like you are making home fries. Corn tortillas and lime is a great way to serve the soup. Some of the water evaporates if you cook the soup uncovered. Good Luck

I'm not quite sure if I did something wrong in the preparation of this soup, but this was not a very good 'soup' at all..it was basically potatoes, peppers a few seasonings and some water. Not much flavor, and certainly not worth the time it took to prepare...the potatoes took quite a while to brown and I would say prep time including the browning of the potatoes was at least a 1/2 hour or so. Actual cook time/simmer time was about 35 minutes as stated...other ratings show that others have enjoyed this recipe, but we didn't like it...we ended up draining off the liquid and just having the potatoes and peppers with a dollop of sour cream..

Husband isn't a big fan of soup nor potatoes, but he really enjoyed this. The only thing I did differently was to use vegetable stock instead of water. With some homemade crusty bread, this was a great lunch on a chilly day. Thanks, Felicia!

My rating is based on the recipe with the following changes: 2 cans chopped green chilis instead of the serrano chilis, 2 cans beef broth instead of the water (8c would have been way too much liquid for our liking), added cumin and chili powder. With those changes/additions, this was a wonderful soup, very warm and comforting! Not spicy at all this way, just good!

We liked this soup but did not find it to be very spicy. I used two chiles with seeds but still found it needing more spice. I also added beef bouillion for more flavor and cut the water to 6 cups.

This is absolutely delicious as is, and also good with vegetarian chicken added to it.

This soup is great! It's so delicious, so easy to make and so cheap! I added a little less water, more chilli and some cumin :)

Absolutely delicious (and simple too!) I used 2 cups of vege broth (instead of all water), added a bit of cilantro and yellow squash, but otherwise kept to the recipe. Served it up with some grated cheddar, a wedge of lime and warm tortillas. Big, big hit! (Note: if you want to spice it up a bit more, add another serrano)
