Add olive oil to a large skillet and cook your celery and onion for 3 -5 minutes or until tender.  Add your diced potatoes, chicken broth and thyme.  Bring to a boil, reduce heat, then cover and simmer for approximately 20-25 minutes or until the potatoes are tender.  Most of the liquid will be gone. You can check the potatoes with a fork to make sure they are done.  During the last 5 minutes of cooking, add frozen peas or green beans. Add salt to taste.  Once plated, add sliced jalapeños from the jar to your liking.  Top with mozzarella cheese if desired.
