I know my husband (and in-laws) dreams that someday we will move to Colorado but I really don’t know if I can do cold weather. Like really. Today it was 39 degrees here in Florida and I wanted to huddle in a ball and do nothing all day. Is that normal? Or are some people invigorated by the cold weather? I braved the cold during my college years and I don’t think I took off my pea coat the entire four years.

Supposedly this is a Paula Deen recipe but I could not find the original recipe anywhere but I saw this at Worthy of the Prize. Enjoy!

Creamy Potato Soup
 
Ingredients
  • 1 (30 oz.) bag frozen hash-brown potatoes (I used cubed)
  • 2 (14 oz.) cans chicken broth (see Note)
  • 1 (10.75 oz.) can cream of chicken soup
  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper (more to taste)
  • 1 (8oz) package cream cheese (softened)
  • Optional Toppings: cheese, bacon, sliced green onions
Instructions
  1. In a slow cooker, combine potatoes, chicken broth, soup, onion, and pepper.
  2. Cover and cook on low for 5-6 hours. If your potatoes are still in big chunks you need to cook it longer. They will start falling apart when it's ready.
  3. Add the cream cheese and cook 30 minutes or until cream cheese is melted, stirring occasionally, until combined.
  4. Top with cheese, bacon, or sliced green onions if desired.
Notes
The soup is thick and creamy. Feel free to add more broth or some milk to thin it to your desired consistency.

  1. Love me some potato soup! Potatoes in any form are pretty much my thing.

  2. Thank you for the nice recipe. Have a great weekend!

  3. Yummy!! That looks really good!! Makes me hungry

  4. I spoke with a vendor of mine in Miami today, and he told me the same..40dgs down there! I couldn’t believe it. Yuk! I’m a Florida girl (Jville native) currently (and temporarily) living in West Texas. I cannot wait to move back home. Today is nice..close to 80, but yea, it’s suppose to snow on Sunday, and like three other days next week!! Aaagh! Thanks for the recipe. I love potato soup! πŸ™‚

  5. Taste to effort ratio. Haha! love those recipes.

  6. Looks delicious πŸ™‚

  7. Where did you get these bowls from? They are just perfect πŸ™‚

  8. I have been thinking about making a big pot of potato soup for this week’s lunches at work…this one looks super creamy, thick, and delicious!

  9. Love a classic potato soup! Especially when it’s as delicious and creamy as this. Looks SO good.

  10. I’m a week out from my due date and we are supposed to get snow this week (in NC). This is the perfect warm and easy meal to go on my menu this week! If adding ham when do you put that in?

  11. Wow! This does look so easy! Totally adding it to the menu for this week! By the way, I live in Colorado, and we rejoice when it gets to 39 degrees! Today the high is going to be 43 degrees, and we’re all like, “Oh my gosh, it’s going to be so warm today!”

  12. WOW! is all I can say. This is so easy and was absolutely delicious. Topped it with shredded cheddar and bacon this time. Next time going to add some cubed ham. This is one of those recipes you can use as a base and add pretty much whatever you want to it. Fantastic.

  13. I was trolling cooking sites for freezer meal recipes…this is added to my list! Woo hoo!! Thanks lady!

  14. Do you think this could be done on the stove top? I just didn’t have time to put it in my crockpot today. πŸ™

  15. could you use just potatos’s that have been pealed and cut into cubes?

  16. Melissa D. in TX says:

    I have been wanting to make this recipe since you posted it. Finally, did today … and it was a big hit in our house! My teenage daughters thought it was as better than any restaurant potato soup. This is definitely a keeper! Thanks!

  17. My children got braces today and yes, I know it’s 100 degrees outside but potato soup is just good for the body and soul so I made this tonight for them and it was a HUGE hit! The kids are full and everyone just went on about how delicious it was.

  18. Is it okay if you accidentally threw in the cream cheese at the start with the other ingredients? Or will it mess it all up?

  19. Can you use fresh potatoes instead of frozen ones?

  20. This is delicious! I cooked a pound of bacon the night before and crumbled it and added it at the end with the cream
    Cheese!! It was delicious and leftovers were even better!!

  21. What if I cook it in the crock pot on high for three hours instead of on low for six hours? Would it still come out ok?

  22. Hello! About how many servings does this make? I need to feed 4 people plus have left overs. Should I double it?

  23. I am making it now and I hope it turns out! I misread the directions and put in 2 cans of cream of chicken and one can of chicken broth. I added milk but not sure what else to do. I like the idea of adding broccoli. Did you do that at the beginning or the end? I hope the kids like it!

  24. My husband says ” this is his favorite soup”. Lucky me! So easy!

  25. I made this yesterday for a girlfriends get together Our theme was comfort food
    This was a huge hit. I also doubled the recipe so my husband and kids would be able to also partake and they raved!!!! I put the cream cheese in at the beginning because I was afraid I would forget it at the end and it didn’t hurt it in anyway . Next time I may add some Velveeta to it as well
    All in all I cannot wait to make it again. Now excuse me I am heating up leftovers πŸ˜€

  26. Very easy to make, but doesn’t have a lot of flavor unfortunately.

  27. how many does this recipe feed?

  28. This was SO EASY and SO DELICIOUS!! I hate peeling all those potatoes for soup, but this took all of three seconds to make!! I LOVE YOU FOR SHARING!

  29. Yum! I used O’Brien frozen hashbrown potatoes. (The ones with the peppers and onions) And added some milk towards the end to thin it out a little, cause that’s how we like it! So good and easy .. Thanks! πŸ™‚

  30. How many servings is this?

  31. Looking forward to making this tomorrow. It’s been cold up here in New England lately too. And I’m talking a lot colder than 39 degrees. πŸ˜‰

  32. Made this tonight. Delicious! Perfect for a cold Rainey day like this one. Thanks for the recipe.

  33. Trying this today. I shredded some fresh potatoes because I had them on hand and needed to use them. I added a package of Ranch dressing mix. Per one of the other comments I tried some velveeta – I started with 4 oz because I didn’t want to overwhelm it. It’s a nice creamy texture but you can’t take the cheese. You’d have to add a lot more and risk making it cheese soup I think to have it make an impact. We’re serving it with sour cream, cheddar cheese, bacon and crusty bread. It’s a hit.

  34. I have never been a fan of soup, but the rest of my family loves it so I gave this a try. This is a definite keeper! It was very easy and the toppings make it over-the-top good! I put the cream cheese in at least an hour before done and had to whisk it at the end a bit (didn’t want to because it breaks up the potatoes a bit), because the cream cheese didn’t want to melt into the soup. Next time I am doubling the recipe, or maybe even tripling because it vanished in no time.. no left overs! Ty sooooo much for this GREAT recipe!

  35. Made this today. Heaven in a bowl!

  36. How many servings dose the creamy potato soup serve.

  37. going to try this today post blizzard.How many potatoes did anyone use you made this with fresh, not frozen?

  38. I’m pretty sure she didn’t tell us about her cold weather so we could all “one-up “her with our colder temperatures! Geez that’s aggravating.
    This recipe looks easy and delicious…thanks for sharing! ☺️

  39. How can i make this vegetarian? thanks!

  40. Could you put everything in at the same time, including the cream cheese?? Or is there a reason the cream cheese should be added 30 minutes before its done??

  41. What substitutes can i make to make it vegetarian? thanks! What would i sub the chicken soup for?

  42. Hi! I accidently put the cream cheese in at the same time as everything else. Will it turn out okay, do you think??

  43. woudl cream of mushroom work?

  44. Donna Knetter says:

    Can I make this using vegetable broth instead of chicken?

  45. Hey, I was wondering if you could put this recipe on high for 3-4 hours instead of low for 5-6 and would it turn out the same?

  46. Delicious! Not sure why this is rated so low when I am reading such great reviews. Easy to make. I will double the recipe next time for sure so we have leftovers.

  47. Looked great and when i started to put it together i thought, i needed to turn it up a notch and added 1(16 oz.) bag of frozen John Souls Chicken Fajitas and 1 (2.8 oz.) bag of real bacon bits and it turned out fabulous. Thanks for sharing

  48. How many people will this feed, and when exactly do I add the cream cheese?

  49. waiting for your reply. want to make this today. raining.

  50. I just want to say this is my favorite potatoe soup recipe. I can easily double this and I use fresh potatoes. It’s so creamy and I can easily prep it and get it in the crockpot before work. Kid friendly too.

  51. Um, this is THE BEST! I have nothing else to add.

  52. I made this today for dinner and it smells great only one problem. I put the cream cheese in at the beginning because I wasn’t going to be home in time to do it. I also had to put it on the low setting at 8 hours because the 5 hour setting was high. I only let it cook for 6.5 hours on low. Anyway when I looked at it I noticed the cream cheese was all chunky. Does that mean I cooked it to long and it’s bad? Thanks for the advice!

  53. This was SOOOOO GOOD!!!! I couldn’t find cubed frozen potatoes so I used ore ida shredded ones and they worked just fine! I fried up some bacon during the 30 mins I waited for cream cheese to melt and added it to the top and sprinkled with cheese and scallions! Filling and delish and so easy.. nice to come home to after a long day and just have something warm and delish!!

  54. Made this soup today as directed. Topped w/bacon, green onions, cheese and a small dallop of sour cream. It was wonderful, thank you!

  55. Omg! Let’s make this one

  56. This soup is amazing! Tastes like creamy mashed potatoes and I love that you can add just about anything to it. Great recipe.

  57. Bridget Theodore says:

    This soup is amazing! My husband, who is notoriously picky and not a huge soup fan, went crazy for this! I did tweak it a bit and added a couple of tablespoons of homemade dry ranch seasoning (no buttermilk, just the spices). It really added some depth to the flavor. Also, don’t skimp on the cheddar and bacon…it takes it to another level!
