Easy Crockpot Creamy Potato Soup Recipe

Easy Potato Soup Using A Slow Cooker

My love for dishes with potatoes continue. Combine that with cold weather then what you've got is creamy loaded potato soup. Slow cooked so that I can go about my day as usual. This easy recipe is adapted from thecrockpotgirl's Youtube video.

Crockpot Potato Soup

Recipe Ingredients:
  • 6 large potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 1 quart chicken broth
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup butter (skipped)
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper
  • 1 oz cream cheese, cubed (orig 1 cup cream or 1 cup 1/2 and 1/2 cream)
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • Garnish: chopped green onions, bacon, and shredded cheese
Directions:

The steps to make are ridiculously easy, but see the short video below for a full explanation. Just like any other crockpot recipes, the idea is to prepare the ingredients, mix them all up in the crockpot and cook for several hours.

A couple of changes have been made from the original recipe. Particularly, butter and cream have been replaced altogether by 1 oz cream cheese simply because I did not have enough butter and cream at the time I decided to make this soup. Also, 1/4 teaspoon of red pepper have been added to give the soup a little kick.
  1. Dice and slice onion and potatoes. Since I was aiming for 8 hours of cooking time, I cut up the potatoes a little thicker (1-inch cubes).
  2. Combine potatoes, onion, chicken broth, garlic cloves, salt, pepper and red pepper in the slow cooker. Cover and set on low for 8 hours.
  3. Mash the potatoes using either an immersion blender (Cuisinart rocks!) or a common potato masher. Either one is handy if you love making dishes with potatoes. I might have made mine a little smoother than the original recipe had intended.
  4. Add cubed cream cheese and shredded cheese. Adjust temperature to high and stir until well blended. Should take 15 minutes or so.
  5. Garnish and serve.
