Crock Pot Cheesy Potato Soup

This creamy and dreamy crock pot cheesy potato soup recipe is easy to make. It's the perfect family comfort foot for busy weeknights.


You’ll Need:


  • 6 large peeled, Yukon Gold potatoes cut in 1/2 -inch cubes
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 4-6 cups cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup cold milk
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup heavy cream or half and half
  • 1 pound Velveeta Cheese, cut into chunks
  • Bacon, fried and crumbled, optional
  • green onions, optional

Instructions:


Add the potatoes, onion, garlic, salt, pepper and the chicken broth to a 4 quart or larger crock pot, stir and cook on high for about 3 ½ hours OR 6-8 hours on low, until potatoes are completely cooked and fork tender.
At the end of the cooking time in step 1, whisk the 3 tablespoons of flour into the 1 cup of cold milk until smooth. Stir the flour mixture into the potatoes, add the ½ cup heavy cream, stir then cover and cook for another 30 minutes. Add the chunks of cheese and allow to melt. Garnish with bacon and green onions.

Notes:


This recipe calls for 4 cups of chicken broth. You can add another cup at the end if you find the soup is too thick for your liking. If you're shopping for a slow cooker, this one is my favorite. Make a similar version of this soup in your Pressure cooker: Instant Pot Cheesy Potato Soup.
