Crockpot Potato Chowder

I got a new crockpot and a Taste of Home Crockpot cookbook for my birthday recently. Yesterday was a total soup day, so I tried this since we had all the ingredients on hand. I wondered if this soup would be bland, but I was pleasantly surprised. It was sooooooo good. We of course topped it with some shredded cheddar cheese as well!

8 c diced potatoes (we left the skins on)
1/3 c chopped onion
3 (14 oz) cans chicken broth
1 can (10 oz) cream of chicken soup
1/4 tsp pepper
1 (8 oz)cream cheese (cubed)
1/2 pound bacon (cooked and crumbled)
snipped chives
shredded cheddar cheese to top, if you'd like

In a slow cooker, combine the first five ingredients. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours or until potatoes are tender. Add cream cheese; stir until blended. Garnish with bacon and chives if desired. We topped our bowls with some shredded cheddar!


  1. Awesome Chowder!!! made this today and it was super easy and very tasty. My whole family loved it!!! thank you for posting and sharing :) Blessings to you!!!

  2. I just made it again last weekend! Glad you all enjoyed it.

  3. I wasn't thinking, and bought the condensed chicken broth, I left the third can out and put in water. Condensed not a good idea right?

  4. I didn't realize you could buy condensed broth. I would just dilute as directed and add the equivalent of 3 cans, once diluted.
