Your Kitchen Friends
Our guests often ask for recipes from the Latigo Ranch kitchen.  We plan to post a new recipe here regularly. 

Lisa searches for recipe ideas and often finds new recipes to try, and if we like them, Randy experiments to figure out how to make them work when preparing them for 30+ guests.  Sometimes what we end up with is quite different from the original  and other times we make little change.  

Since most of you don't live at 9,000 ft. above sea level like we do, we have adjusted the recipes for baked goods for low altitude.  If you do need to correct for higher altitudes, please feel free to email us for suggestions.

Enjoy your cooking, eating, and friendship around the table.

Recipe of the Week

Potato Chili Cheese Soup

Sunday, January 02, 2011

 4 medium potatoes, peeled and diced

3 C water

2 T olive oil

1 1/2 C chopped onion

1 1/2 t salt

1 t cumin

1 t basil

1/2 t minced garlic

1/2 t pepper

1 1/2 C diced green pepper

1 C diced canned green chilies

 3/4 C sour cream

1 C milk

3/4 C shredded Monterey Jack cheese  (pepper Jack is also very good)


Boil potatoes in water, when tender, mash right in water until you have reached the desired consistency.  Saute the onions in the oil until they are tender.  Add the seasonings, peppers, and chilies.  Saute for 5 more minutes.  Add the cooked potatoes and heat through.  Stir in the sour cream, milk, and cheese.  Simmer until heated through.  Avoid boiling and stir frequently to keep the cheese from sticking.
