My mom used to do that too.Originally Posted by lildago;3317789;
I have added leftover mashed potatos to soup. It's a great thickener and flavor enhancer. I've even added leftover stuffing to turkey or chicken soup and it's great too. It and the potatos sort of "disappear" in the soup, make it thicker and tastier.
Ana, that sounds good. I have a similar recipe that doesn't use cream cheese or cream, but as I like both, I can't wait to try yours.
I'll have to post my version again. I know I've posted it on fort before.
We call it Southwestern or Sante Fe Stew. But it's more souplike to me.
