Ingredients & Instructions

  • 1 lb Frick’s bone-in ham, cubed
  • 1 bunch green onions sliced
  • 12-16 oz new potatoes sliced in quarters
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup + 2 Tablespoons flour
  • 4-5 cups whole milk warm
  • 6-8 oz shredded cheese
  • 1-2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 2 whole jalapenos chopped for garnish

Step 1

Chop your potatoes, green onions, and jalapeños. Set aside green onions and jalapeños. Place chopped potatoes in a bowl of water to soak while you prepare other items.

Step 2

Chop ham, careful to slice around the bone. Chop about 1 pound into pieces for your soup. Slice remaining ham to use for sandwiches or snacks!

Step 3

Add 5 cups of milk to a pot and warm over medium heat for about 5-8 minutes, make sure it doesn’t burn.

Step 4

While milk is warming, add butter to a large stock pot and melt. Then, add flour to melted butter, constantly whisking to combine to create a roux. Carefully pour 4 cups of warm milk into roux, whisking to combine. Be sure to scrape anything off the bottom so nothing burns. Cook for about 2 minutes, until it thickens. Add additional cup of milk until desired thickness.

Step 5

Add chopped potato, half of the sliced green onions, and ham to the stock pot. Stir to combine. Bring to a boil, then simmer for about 15-20 minutes.

Step 6

Check your potato doneness and continue cooking until desired texture. Then, turn off heat and add shredded cheese, stirring to combine. Ladle into a bread bowl and top with more cheese, green onions, chopped jalapenos, and maybe sour cream!
