Easy Cheesy Potato Soup Recipe! (And Slow-Cooker Version)


Easy Cheesy Potato Soup Recipe {Slow-Cooker Version}

Meatless Idea: If you’re looking to make this for Lent, or as a meatless meal – just use vegetable stock instead of chicken stock, and crumble crackers on top instead of bacon :)

I don’t know about you guys, but around Tennessee lately it’s been REALLY cold.  The kind of cold that makes you want to fill your tummy with something warm… something cheesy… something loaded with delicious carbs…  Well this is it!

I posted my favorite cheesy potato soup recipe once before – but I’ve adapted it for the slow cooker so you can make it on busy days. :)  My family told me it was the BEST soup I’d ever made – which I will chalk up to the fact that Velveeta was present. (Credit where credit is due)

The recipe below is the most basic – but there are optional extras you can use to make it even BETTER.  (Like shredded carrots to give it a little vitamin kick)

For the crock-pot version of this soup – put all the solid ingredients, including boullion cubes, into your crockpot.  Pour in the water and the cream soups, and set it on High for 4 Hours, or Low for 6-8. SO EASY!!

Helpful Hint: I put my Velveeta in at the beginning, but I almost think it would’ve been wiser to melt it in the microwave and add it at the end (It stuck to the sides of the crockpot a little).  If you use slow cooker bags though, this probably wouldn’t even be an issue :)
