Vibrant Red Soup With Potato Sticks

I attribute my liking to this soup mainly for its vibrant color, smooth texture, and deliciousness. It is a nutrient-dense chowder soup. I used tomatoes, potatoes, onions, chili powder, and dried Italian spices in this.

Adding Italian spices makes it fantastic. While sipping, you will enjoy the nice aroma of dried herbs and spices. Here, boiled potato sticks are immersed in a mildly-spiced tomato puree. This soup is a winter winner.

This chowder soup is filling. You can serve it as an in-between meal food or an evening food.

Here we go to the detailed recipe.
