Total Time: 45 minutes
Recipe by: Frankie


  • 1 TBSP peanut oil
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tsp achiote powder (ground annatto seeds)
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • salt & pepper
  • 2 pounds russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 cup half & half
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 bunch freshly chopped cilantro leaves
  • 1 avocado, peeled, pitted, and diced
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey jack cheese



  1. Heat the oil in a dutch oven over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, achiote, cumin, 1 tsp salt, and 1/4 tsp pepper. Stir to combine and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion softens, about 5 minutes.

  2. Add the potatoes to the pot and stir to combine. Stir in the vegetable broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover the dutch oven and simmer until potatoes are tender, 15 to 20 minutes.

  3. Using a potato masher mash the potatoes in the soup so theyre mashed but still a little chunky.

  4. Stir in the half & half until heated through. Stir in the cheddar cheese until completely melted. Season the soup with salt & pepper to taste.

  5. Ladle into bowls and top with the fresh cilantro, avocado, and Monterey jack cheese.
