slow cooked potato soup, perfect for colder weather

 

Cooler weather means it’s time to put my slower cooker to work! I’m ready for warm, delicious meals that go from slow cooker to dining room table in a few easy steps. During the school year, I especially need dinner ideas that are simple and easy to make.

Today, I will be sharing with you my Ultimate Slow-Cooked Potato Soup. It takes only a few ingredients but has a rich bold flavor. Preparation is quick and there is plenty of opportunities to modify the recipe each time you make it for a different taste experience.

Start by peeling and dicing your potatoes. This is the most time-consuming part but I promise the fruits of your labor are well worth it!

Next, add your chicken broth, potatoes, and garlic to the slow cooker. Set on low for 6 hours or high for 4 hours.

One hour before serving your potato soup, dice the cream cheese into cubes and add it to your soup. Occasionally stir the cream cheese to help it melt evenly. You will notice that as you stir your potatoes will start to disintegrate. It’s okay, in fact, it’s exactly the result your looking for since this potato soup has the texture of a chowder.

While the cream cheese is melting you can dice cooked ham or sausage and add it to the soup. You can also add cooked bacon as a topping. This is a great way to make the soup different each time.

Top the soup with cheese and chives! Enjoy!!
