This Skinny Slow Cooker Potato Soup is unbelievably creamy, mega flavorful and super easy in the crock pot! This richly satisfying lightened up soup is destined to become a new favorite!
If your holidays were anything like mine with a basket brimming with goodies on the kitchen counter that you had to swipe something from every time you walked by, then you might be looking for something a little on the lighter side. But to ease you into “lighter,” I’ve whipped up a thick and creamy potato soup that is certain to fool your taste buds but not your waistline.
This Slow Cooker Potato Soup is wonderfully rich, thick and creamy without any heavy cream or the hassle of making a roux! The most time consuming part of this potato soup is chopping the veggies which probably only takes 20 minutes, so worth it for bowl after bowl of foodie heaven. If you want to do most of the prep ahead of time, just be sure to keep your chopped potatoes in water in the refrigerator to keep from browning and then when you are ready to cook, its dump and run time!
To make this Skinny Slow Cooker Potato Soup, simply add your diced potatoes, onions, carrots, celery, garlic, 2 strips crumbled bacon and 4 cups chicken broth to your slow cooker along with dried parsley, dried thyme, dried oregano, salt, pepper and chicken bouillon. The generous seasonings really set this soup apart because with that many otherwise bland potatoes and veggies, you really need to dress this silkiliciousness up with some flavor OOMPH!
You let your soup cruise on HIGH for 4 -5 hours or on LOW for 8-10 hours or until potatoes are completely tender – then it’s magic time. To create the ultra creamy soup, add 1/2-2/3 of the soup contents (veggies and broth) to your blender along with some cornstarch, evaporated milk and cream cheese (I use 1/3 less fat) and blend until completely smooth.
Pour the creamy blender contents back into slow cooker along with 1 cup chicken broth and cook on high for 20 additional minutes in order to thicken some more then stir in 1 cup cheddar until smooth.
Finally, garnish your comforting, warm, fabulously delicious Slow Cooker Potato Soup with all or some of your favorite garnishes – cheese, bacon, green onions, sour cream, crackers, etc.
And drink up bowl after bowl after bowl. Because its skinny. And because you can. And because it doesn’t taste skinny at all.
