Do I Have to Peel the Potatoes? Actually, it’s your choice. I have made this with peeled potatoes and unpeeled potatoes. Both ways are delicious!

Can I Use Fresh Chopped Onion & Garlic? Yes. I do recommend soften them both up in a skillet beforehand.

Can I Use Unsalted/Low Sodium Chicken Broth? Yes. Check in the recipe card for the brand I prefer.

How to Make:

  • First, add diced potatoes into the crock pot. Then, add in minced onion, garlic and chicken broth.
  • Cover and cook.
  • Next, cut up the cream cheese into cubes. Stir into the potatoes. Continue cooking until the cheese if fully melted. This should take approx 30 minutes.
  • Once the cheese is melted, puree the soup to desired consistency. You can do this using your immersion blender.
  • If you don’t have an immersion blender, you can use a hand potato masher or carefully, transfer the soup into a regular standing blender, then, return it to the crock pot to keep warm.

Topping Ideas:

  • Chopped bacon
  • Shredded cheddar cheese
  • Sour cream or plain Greek yogurt

I would not add all that garlic powder. I imagine the garlic would be very empowering...

does any one know how well this freezes?

Hi Becci- it freezes well. It makes a big batch, so, I always freeze half of it for a later dinner.
