The Best Crock-Pot Potato Soup — A Classic Recipe Made Easy!
Recipe type: Soup
  • 1 Small, 3-lb bag of red potatoes, diced
  • 1 Red or yellow onion, diced
  • 1 Small bunch of celery, diced
  • 1 Package of hickory-smoked diced ham
  • 1 tsp Seasoned salt
  • 1 tsp Cracked pepper
  • ¼ tsp Dried red pepper flakes
  • OPTIONAL: ¼ tsp Cayenne pepper
  • 4 cups Chicken broth
  • 2 cups Milk
  • ¼ cup Flour
  • Sour cream
  • Cheddar cheese, shredded
  • Bacon
  • Fresh green onions (A.K.A. scallions), chopped
  1. Dice the red potatoes, the red or yellow onion, and the celery. Dice the green onion bulbs, then dice the green onion tops and reserve the green garnish for later. Add the potatoes to your slow cooker then top with the diced veggies, ham, spices, and chicken broth. Cook on low for 6–8 hours or on high for 4–6 hours.
  2. An hour before serving, prep the roux by warming the milk and whisking in the flour until lump-free. Slowly stir in the roux and turn your Crock-Pot on high. Cook for an additional 30–60 minutes until the broth is simmering. (It must be bubbling for the flour to have a thickening effect.)
  3. Serve this soon-to-be family favorite with some loaded baked potato toppings — sour cream, shredded cheddar cheese, and bacon crumbles topped with a dash of "love" (sprinkle on some chopped scallions). ENJOY!
