Cheesy Green Chile Potato Soup

With less than two weeks to go until a mind-bogglingly major heart surgery, my nerves are starting to come out in my appetite and food choices. When I get stressed, I don’t eat much and when I do eat, I go for comfort foods. Personally, my number one comfort food is soup.


Because of a couple of chronic medical conditions that have nothing to do with my heart deformity, I haven’t felt well today. I needed to come up with something that was easy using ingredients on hand. To save time I used frozen hash browns in tonight’s creation. I like Cascadian Farm’s organic hash browns. I always buy shredded hash browns, unless I’m making corned beef hash, but either shredded or cubed is fine for this recipe.
