Cream of Potato Jalapeno Soup

Easy, easy, easy deliciousness! In Texas, Tex-Mex cuisine reigns supreme and I love this creamy, spicy combination of jalapenos, potatoes, fat free sour cream and fat free evaporated milk. I will eat this as a meal (with a grilled cheese sammy!) or just enjoy as a first course.
