Buena Mexi Chicken Chowder

It’s the potatoes that make this soup so delicious. All of our potatoes come from Washington and Oregon, right next to our home base. This allows us to make small orders and ensure we’re using the newest crop.

Buena, Washington, is a little known but important junction in the lower Yakima Valley. The Buena Junction takes off of I-82 at exit 50 onto highway 22; heading south takes you through the city of Toppenish, which is known for the many western-themed murals painted throughout the city. The murals attract thousands of visitors each year.

This area is also an agricultural hub surrounded by lush fields, vineyards, and orchards. During WWII, Yakima Valley farmers were in desperate need of laborers. Most of the young American men were in the armed forces, and many U.S. laborers had gone to work in defense plants located around the Puget Sound. The federal government established the Bracero Program that allowed Mexican laborers to enter the United States temporarily during the harvest season. Many immigrants are still working in the area to help harvest a variety of crops, including hay, hops, and many types of fruits and vegetables.

This area is a stunningly, diverse geographical region. South on Highway 97 is an amazing view of snow-capped Mt. Adams. The road winds through the open sagebrush and grass-covered hills of the Yakama Indian reservation. There are dramatic changes in scenery as you travel through the inclines and descents of the Simcoe Mountains and over Satus Pass. The view opens up at Goldendale, Washington, to the sight of thousands of acres of dryland farming.

While traveling along Highway 97, make sure to stop at Stonehenge Memorial, Mary Hill Museum, then plan a picnic and swim at the Mary Hill State Park along the Columbia River.
