Crock-Pot Potato Soup

This is a easy potato soup recipe that I have made a bit easier in the type of potato I’ve used.  I normally love love love Idaho Potatoes and Russet Potatoes to eat, but for this soup since I needed to chop it into cube size I went with a more Gourmet potato for their easy clean up, easy to chop and  they have less starch so the color turns out better.

Crock-Pot Potato Soup

Ingredients

4lbs of Ounces of Klondike Gourmet or Fingerling Potatoes
2 Yellow Onions Chopped
3 Stalks of Celery thinly sliced
2 cups of Cooked Chicken or Bacon Crumbles
2 Tablespoons of Butter
2 Chicken Bouillon Cubes
2 Tablespoons of Mrs. Dash Table Blend
2 Tablespoons of Salt
1/2 Teaspoon of Pepper
6 1/2 Cups of Water
2 Cups of Milk
1/2 Cup Flour, mixed with Water

Instructions

  1. I used a liner.
  2. I placed cubed potatoes, onions, celery, cooked chicken (or bacon), butter, bouillon cubs, Mrs. Dash, Salt and Pepper & 6 1/2 cups of water.
  3. Cook on low for 7 and a half hours.
  4. At this point stir the milk and flour/water mixture in a bowl mixing well.
  5. Add the milk/flour/water mixture to the soup and stir carefully, allow to thicken (may take more then 30 minutes).
  6. I would check soup before serving in case you need to add more Salt or Pepper.

Notes

In place of gourmet potatoes you can do 8 regular potatoes diced. Scrub well and you may need to rinse or add a little lemon to them if the starch changes the color.

This soup would be great with cheese or Velveeta added to it near the end.

I would strongly suggest testing before serving to see if more salt or pepper needs to be added. It can be difficult to season a soup without tasting it, add too much at first you can't easily fix.

    I made this tonight and it is wonderful. I’m wondering if you know how many calories are in this soup. I substituted olive oil for the butter. Still yummy! Thanks so much.

      So glad it worked out! Soups are great because it’s easy to swap out one ingredient for another!

    Is there any reason why I can’t just cut up some chicken and throw it in raw? I don’t have cooked chicken and don’t want to waste my time if I don’t have to.

    • Lady Katie says

      raw chicken takes longer to cook in the crock-pot. A can of cooked chicken would work nicely if you do not have cooked chicken on hand.

    • Lady Sarah says

      Another option when needing cooked chicken, besides canned chicken, is just boiling the chicken in a pot of water. It takes no real effort to place it in, and you won’t have to stand by the stove babysitting it vs grilling chicken.

    How would you modify this for cheese and beer? I think beer, cheese, bacon, and potatoes would be a great winter meal.
