This is a soup that could be served hot or cold or as a dip.
Boil 4 cups of water. Set aside.
Combine the cornstarch and the remaining cup of water (the cup of water should be at room temperature). Set aside.
In a large saucepan over low heat, add the butter and allow it to melt. Add onions, potatoes, garlic and salt. Saute for 10 minutes, always stirring.
Then, add the warm water and the water that you’ve combined with the cornstarch. Let it cook for 15 minutes.
Turn off the heat. Pour in the heavy cream, always stirring. Let it cool for 10 minutes.
Then pour this boiled mixture into a blender and blend until a cream is formed.
Pour this cream into the saucepan just to heat the soup. Server warm, cooled or as a dip.
Perfect rainy day soup and quick enough for mid-week supper! Great as a first course or as an entree with a nice spring mix salad and some wonderful crusty bread. And don’t forget about the rest of the bottle of white wine.
I found this copycat recipe online—it really does taste remarkably similar to Wendy’s Chili, only it’s a bit heartier than what I usually get when I hit my local drive-thru. Be warned, this recipe makes a ton—it’ll fill a 5 1/2-quart Dutch oven almost to the rim. Add cheese or sour cream if you like, but they’re really not needed here.
Collards, black-eyed peas and smoky bacon make this delicious take on Hopping John soup.
