This recipe makes an extra thick, delicious potato soup. Using an immersion blender will make your soup extra smooth, just be careful to avoid any hot splatters. Be warned that this recipe makes an extra thick soup, so if you prefer a thinner soup you may want to have some backup chicken broth or milk to thin it out. I reheated leftover soup with a splash of milk to thin it out since it had thickened even more in the fridge.

How to Make Slow Cooker Potato Soup

  1. To a 6 or 7-quart slow cooker, add potatoes, onion, chicken broth, evaporated milk and season with salt and pepper to taste. Cover with lid and cook on HIGH heat for 4 hours or LOW heat for 8 hours. To check for doneness, poke a piece of potato with a knife. It if easily slides through, it is cooked.
  2. Ladle out 2 cups liquid from soup mixture in crock pot into a liquid measuring cup, set aside. In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add flour and cook, stirring constantly, 2 minutes. While whisking, slowly pour 2 cups liquid in measuring cup into butter mixture. Pour butter mixture into slow cooker and stir to blend.
  3. If desired, mash potatoes with a potato masher to break down into smaller pieces or use an immersion blender to puree. (High recommended. Be careful when using an immersion blender. If it splatters on you it can be quite hot).
  4. Cover and cook on HIGH heat until thickened, about 10 minutes. Turn heat off (or to warm), stir in sour cream. Serve warm topped with cheddar, bacon and green onions.

    Can Margarine be used in place of butter for this recipe? Would love to try it, but need to lower the fat content a bit…
