3 Reasons Why You’ll Love This Crockpot Loaded Baked Potato Soup Recipe

  1. It’s made in a a slow-cooker – I love a good crockpot recipe, there’s just something so satisfying about adding all of your ingredients, letting it cook all day, and then getting to enjoy its perfection when the time comes. It’s like putting your dinner on auto-pilot!
  2. It’s thick & creamy – There are times when a thin broth is the thing we need and then there are the times that we’re craving a thick, heary soup. This Crockpot Loaded Baked Potato Soup is the latter – thick, creamy, hearty, and guaranteed to fill you up. This is a crave-worthy hot meal that’ll hit the spot on chilly days.
  3. It’s macro-friendly – I can’t tell you how many times I’ve looked at a soup recipe and felt disappointed with the macros. Most soups, especially those that are cream-based, tend to be high in calories and low in protein. This soup, on the other hand, uses bone broth which gives it a beautiful boost in protein content while keeping the overall calories low, making it an easy fit into your day.

Ingredients
  

  • 2 lbs. Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and diced into 1/2 inch pieces

  • 4 cups chicken bone broth
  • 12 oz. can low fat evaporated milk

Instructions
 

  • In the crockpot, add the diced Yukon gold potatoes and diced onion. Pour in the chicken bone broth, ensuring that the potatoes are mostly covered. Cover and cook on LOW for 6-8 hours, or HIGH for 3-4 hours, , or until the potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the low-fat evaporated milk and cornstarch until the cornstarch is fully dissolved. In the last 30 minutes of cookies, pour the cornstarch mixture, cream cheese chunks, shredded cheese, salt, and pepper into the crockpot and stir to combine. Continue cooking for 30 minutes.
  • Carefully remove the lid and use a potato masher to gently smash about half of the potatoes in the crockpot. This will help thicken the soup.
  • Ladle the hot potato soup into bowls. If desired, garnish each bowl with sliced green onions, additional shredded cheese, and bacon bits for added flavor and texture.
  • Serve your delicious crockpot potato soup hot and savor the comforting flavors!
