Lime, chili powder, and Monterey Jack cheese give a Mexican flair to gold potato wedges. It’s a good way to get that fried effect without a lot of oil. Serve with salsa and sour cream as sides for dipping.

This potato soup can be done two different ways. It just depends on your preference. #1 is to puree the entire batch and then stir the bacon in. #2 is to puree half the batch and then add the bacon. The second way is the chunky soup version. Either way works, and both ways taste delicious.
