  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1/2 cup Chopped Onion
  • 2 (14.5 ounce) Cans Chicken Broth
  • 3 1/2 cups Cauliflower Florets
  • 1 cup Chopped Cooked Ham
  • 1 1/2 cups Shredded Pepper Jack Cheese
  • 1/4 cup Potato Flakes
  • 5 Tbsp Chopped Fresh Cilantro

Step 1

1. In a large pot over medium heat, cook onion in oil until just beginning to brown. Pour in broth and bring to a boil. Stir in cauliflower, bring to a boil again and cook until cauliflower is tender, 2 to 5 minutes.

2. Remove half of cauliflower mixture and puree in a blender or food processor until smooth. I used an immersion blender. Return to pot with ham and cheese and cook until cheese is melted. Stir in potato flakes and heat through. Serve topped with cilantro.

Notes: Very tasty. I used white American cheese and no cilantro. I guess I didn't add the "southwestern" ingredients but it was a very good soup. Next time I will use the pepper jack and cilantro just to see the difference.
