We all pin so many ideas and recipes, but let’s take some action people! At least once a month, cook or bake something that you pinned and link it in the comments!

The original recipe is here, I adapted it to better suit what we like so be sure to check out both. My version made about 8 servings.

For my version, here’s what you’ll need:

  • 3 whole carrots, diced
  • 6 whole small potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 3 cans chicken broth
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh parsley
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Here’s how it goes:

  • Dice your carrots and put them in a large pot with a bit of water, leave on stoptop with medium heat
  • Peel and dice your potatoes, add them to the carrots, and let cook for 5-7 more minutes
  • Add salt, pepper, chili powder, and chicken broth to the pot, cook for 10-15 more minutes until potatoes are soft
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together your flour and milk, then add to the pot and cook for another 5 minutes
  • Remove 1/2-2/3 of the soup from the pot and put it in the blender on high until creamy then add it back into the pot
  • Mix in sour cream and parsley
