How to Make It

Step 1

Stir the hot sauce, Worcestershire and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper in a medium bowl.  Add the pecans and toss to coat.  Spread the pecans in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet.

Step 2

Bake at 250°F. for 15 minutes or until the pecans are toasted. Let the pecans cool on the baking sheet on a wire rack.

Step 3

Heat the butter in a 6-quart saucepot over medium heat.  Add the onions and garlic and cook until the onions are tender, stirring occasionally.

Step 4

Stir the broth, bay leaves, remaining black pepper and potatoes in the saucepot and heat to a boil.  Reduce the heat to low.  Cover and cook for 10 minutes or until the potatoes are tender.

Step 5

Stir in 1 cup heavy cream and cook until the mixture is hot and bubbling.  Remove and discard the bay leaves.

Step 6

Place 1/3 of the broth mixture into a blender or food processor.  Cover and blend until the mixture is smooth.  Pour the mixture into a large bowl.  Repeat twice with the remaining broth mixture.  Return the broth mixture to the saucepot and cook until the mixture is hot and bubbling.

Step 7

For Chive Chantilly: Beat 1/2 cup heavy cream in a medium bowl with an electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form. Fold in the chives. Garnish the soup with the Chive Chantilly and sprinkle with the pecans.
