Four favorites come together in this dish: butternut squash, polenta, spinach and, of course, cheese. I also love eating out of bowls, the really rounded kind that fit in your hands just right. This is great, tasty comfort food.
We like this soup a lot, and don’t care that it doesn’t resemble most tortilla soups. My sister’s, for example, is a spicy tomato broth to which chicken, cheese, tortilla chips and other items are added. It’s tasty. Applebee’s version is very cheesy and smooth. Also tasty. But we love our veggies, so this hearty (and mild for the hubby) version is perfect for us.
I have a bit o’ Irish blood in me, so I’ve made colcannon for St Paddy’s Day before. But this year I wanted soup, so I came up with this. It was tasty, defying the unfortunate reputation Ireland has for bland food. And who doesn’t like potatoes?
