    Is the 30 minutes in step 2 on high or low heat? Does it matter? I’m making it tonight… I had some baby carrots in my fridge that I needed to get rid of so I cut some of those up tossed them in there too… I hope it’s good! 😅

    Easy and so good.

    Love the taste but mine is too watery. How can I thicken it up? Thanks!

    If I wanted to make this for a crowd of 6, what would the measurements be then? If you wouldn’t mind sharing that would be so helpful.

  • Jennifer Zavala Reply

    Oh my goodness! This potato soup is delicious. I followed the ingredients but substituted the onion with 1 Tbsp of onion powder as I don’t like the texture of onion. My daughter loves potato soup, and I can’t wait for her to get home from school to try this. This is a restaurant quality recipe. Thank you for sharing it.

    I always add in smoked sausage about half way through (the fully cooked kind) sooooo good!

    I’m making this this weekend and I’m looking forward to it. I want to add stew/steak meat to
    It with some spicy velvets cheese to spice/nacho it up. Any suggestions on adding the stew/steak meat?

  • Lisa Reply

    This is soooo good. We have made it over and over again. Really easy to make for people with busy lifestyles.

  • Angelina Reply

    Trying for the second time! I’m not ready to give up! Last weekend I followed this recipe exact, used the 1lb melting cheese block of velveeta cut into chunks also, but it never ever melted 😳 everything else was cooking just fine! I bumped it up to high for 30 minutes and it still didn’t melt. Should I have used/done something different?

    • Debbie Reply

      I use 2 bags of the shredded Velveeta. It melts a lot faster.

  • Rachel Reply

    I’ve been making this recipe for a few years! It’s amazing and always a hit for company! I normally don’t comment on recipes, especially not to add edits. But I’ve added 1-2 scraped and diced jalapeños to the first step of this recipe and it’s so good! Doesn’t add much for spice because I scrape them so much, but definitely adds some more flavor! (Not that this recipe needs more, it’s excellent as is!) thanks for sharing!

  • Heather Reply

    By far the BEST! Everyone asks for the recipe as soon as they smell it!

  • Missy Reply

    I plan to make this soup this weekend. Instead of chunks of cheese I plan to use a can of nacho cheese. Has anyone ever tried this?

  • CAS Reply

    Next time I’ll use 1 tsp of garlic. For it was a little too garlicky. BUT DELICIOUS!

  • Linda Reply

    We’re going to make this delicious-looking soup this week. We always use Mexican-style Velveeta cheese for a little zing in our potato soup. Thank you for the great recipe!

    This is literally the best potato cheese soup I’ve ever had (or any soup for that matter.) This is a staple recipe in my kitchen now. It’s absolutely velvety, luxurious, and warms you through and through on fall and winter evenings!

    This recipe was a big hit at my house. Hubby said he’s never had any better potato soup ever! Thank you for the recipe

  • Keely Reply

    I love this recipe, it is so easy to customize! I have made it in the crockpot and on the stove top when I am in a hurry. Both ways are great!

    • Wayne Senioe Reply

      Hey Keely
      Just saw you cook this on the stove to make it quicker. I love this recipe but often don’t have the time, would it be too much to ask for your recipe? I’d love to try it.
      I understand if you don’t have the time.If you can,
      Thanks sooooo much!
      Warm regards,

      • Courtney

        Hey Wayne not sure how Keely does if, but I cook the onions and garlic in 4 Tablespoons of butter for about five minutes. Add the flour and stir for about a minute. Then add the potatoes, broth, and seasoning. Bring to a boil, then reduce to simmer. Cook for about 15 minutes. Add cream and milk and cook for about another 15-20 minutes until I like the potatoes texture. Add the cheese. Stir until melted and serve. Hope that helps!

    • Tara C. Reply

      Very good recipie!! I added chopped carrots and celery to this as well as some shredded cheddar with the Velveeta. Delish!!

    • Sara Reply

      Hello I want to make this tonight, and I don’t have enough time to cook the potatoes for 3 hrs, can I just boil them in water and then add then to the chicken broth?

  • Wanda Reply

    I added a can of healthy cream of mushroom and used cubed smoked ham steak. Excellent! Definitely saving this pin!

        Hi Crissy,
        I’m making this today & I can’t wait! I’m curious I love keeping the potato peel on after scrubbing. Would they slip off while cooking & affect the texture?

    I’m making this recipe this weekend but wanted to add carrots & broccoli. Would I add these towards the end or at the beginning?

    • Ken Reply

      You know, it really comes down to the tenderness you like. If the vegetables are put in at the beginning, they will very soft to mushy at the end. Likewise, if you add then I the last hour, they will be still pretty firm and still crispy. I would add the carrots and broccoli 1/2 way through the cooking time.

    This is my second time making this! Made it last Sunday and everyone loved it, even my picky 8 yr olds. I made this using what I had on hand which was regular Idaho potatoes, it turned out beautifully! I haven’t made it with the yellow gold potatoes but I’m sure it is just as amazing. Very creamy and the ultimate comfort food! We added freshly cooked bacon crumbled up just before serving. This soup makes my heart sing! Thank you for this amazing recipe!

    Just made this today. Really loved it. I did make some minor changes, and like another reviewer said, this makes an excellent base recipe.I put ham in my soup, and also the chopped frozen broccoli that you get at the store, because for some unknown reason, I have a terrible time finding florets.I didn’t use Velveeta, and instead I used an 8oz bag of the shredded smokey bacon cheese that Kraft offers. Great choice! Most people suggest not using the preshredded cheese because of the lumps that they tend to create, but I don’t mind cheesy lumps personally.I also didn’t have any half and half, so I used 1/2 cup whole milk and 3 Tablespoons of butter to substitute. Worked out awesome!Thank you for this lovely recipe! Tasted fabulous, and extremely easy to make!

    • Cheryl Reply

      When did you put the frozen broccoli in? In the beginning or at the end?

      • Lexi

        If it’s chopped really small, you will want to put it near the end. You could put it in anytime though, but you’ll lose some of the texture. It doesn’t take long to cook chopped broccoli.

  • Jalayne Flores Reply

    Hi! I want to try this recipe, but what is a faster way to make it on the stove. We’ve made similar soups for less than 2 hours before on stove. Any advice?

    • kg Reply

      I bring to a boil and then simmer for 40 minutes on the stove!
      I guess I am answering this 2 years later lol.

    • Crissy Page Reply

      I’m so pleased that you loved it, Diane!

  • rick smith Reply

    First let me say this Velveeta is not cheese it is a processed cheese product. I made this recipe and used real cheese a combination of 4 cheeses, Havarti, Gruyere, Fontaina and Cheddar it was amazing. Using a crock pot makes this a mix and forget about it. I used low for 6.5 hours and was able to get everything done and have a great soup at the end of the day. I also think bacon is a must in this soup

    Hello!!BEST POTATO SOUP EVER! I have made this twice, and I prefer my second remake of the soup! 4cups of the broth and heavy cream instead of the latter.. It definitely made it thicker, so if you need 4.5-5 cups of broth, go for it, but the heavy cream instead of half and half made a difference for us! Absolutely a killer! I added some potatoes because we like a big bite at my house, but this will forever be a favorite and may never be beaten! LOVE LOVE LOVE! Just wish I knew the calorie count! If anybody has any knowledge on that, I’d be grateful!

  • Megan Reply

    I changed this recipe a lot, mostly because I only had a 3-quart crock pot, and from some of the suggestions in the comments. I used only 3 cups of chicken broth, and it still didn’t thicken up. So I had to use extra cornstarch (didn’t have flour}. I also cooked the garlic and onions before-hand mostly because I like the flavor better when the onions are caramalized, so that’s more of a personal taste kind of thing. And lastly I had to add in some spices at the end because it did taste a little bland, but I’m also Southern so I like everything I eat to be spicy lol. But other than that, this recipe was amazing and I’m 100% going to make it again.

    This soup is SO delicious. I’m making it right now to take to a soup luncheon with senior adults. I know they will love it, too. For those who have had difficulty with their soup not being thick enough, I had the same problem and added just enough instant potato flakes for thickening. It worked out great! Love the idea of adding corn and may do that this time. Thanks for so many wonderful recipes!

      Yes, just use half as much cornstarch, compared to flour. Cornstarch has more thickening power than flour, so if a recipe calls for 2 TBSP Flour, use 1 TBSP.

      Good base for this recipe! I used cheddar soup instead of Velveeta cheese, wasn’t cheesy enough so I added shredded cheese. The only mistake I made was adding 6 cups of chicken broth instead of 4 and a little too garlicky but I will know for next time. Great recipe still and easy to make!

    • Crissy Reply


  • Amanda Reply

    I’m making this right now and it smells amazing! I used 6 cups of broth and I’m worried it may be too watery. I’m waiting for the cheese to melt right now but if it’s too watery for my liking is there something I can do? Maybe add more flour mixture or heavy cream? ?

    • Cheryl Reply

      I had this same problem. I tried adding some cornstarch but it didn’t help. Curious what others found to help thicken it? It’s good, but just a touch thicker would make it great. Next time I definitely won’t add all the broth.

      • Crissy

        Hey Amanda, I think cutting back on the broth will solve your problem. Thanks for commenting!

      • Linda Gillenwaters

        Cheryl – I make this recipe with a can of cream of celery soup (undiluted), 2c. of chicken broth and one pkg of cream cheese. I use regular grated cheese (pkg). Everything else is the same: bacon, pepper, onion – I brown the edges of mine). I do not use garlic, i/2&1/2, i cook my potatoes a little first, and I use 2c. of broth instead of 4-6. See all the liquid that is eliminated? You can always add it later, if you need it. I have been making this for about 15 years and it is my favorite and I am a big soup person. So please give it another try. Linda G.

    • Crissy Reply

      Hey Laura! I’m so glad you loved it. I know that a few of my readers have used real cheese in place of the velveeta and they said it works very well. I would recommend buying a block of cheese and grating it yourself instead of getting the shredded stuff in the bag. Off the block seems to melt better! :)

  • ChrisofDan Reply

    I was a little skeptical, but this was delicious. I used a 32 oz bag of frozen diced hashbrowned potatoes, and it worked beautifully–for those who want to make this even easier. It looked like a lot of garlic and onion, but ended up being perfect. I also threw in some precooked diced ham at the beginning and it added some yummy flavor and texture. I think my husband liked this best out of anything I’ve made lately. I can see this being good for a potluck. Thank you for a keeper recipe.

    First of all, this recipe is wonderful. I tweeted it about to my liking and it came out amazing. I used 6 cups of broth instead of 4 and left out the garlic and green onions. It was a hit and I’ll definitely be making it again.

    This was absolutely fantastic!!! The cheese didn’t overpower the flavor, it was nice and mild, but definitely present. It was smooth and creamy and so, so good! My son (age 9) wants me to make it all the time, now. The recipe says 4-6 cups of chicken broth. I chose to go right up the middle with 5 cups. It wasn’t thick, but certainly not watery, either. I’ll stick with 5 cups. I used white pepper as opposed to black pepper just because I like the smooth flavor of white pepper, but beyond that, I followed the recipe exactly. It’s going to become a staple menu item at our house.

    This sounds so good. Going to try it for sure. Love that some one else calls all crock pots, crock pots. I have been corrected many times, but they are still crock pots.

    I did not get Velveeta. Do you think sharp cheddar or mozzarella would work?

    • Crissy Reply

      Cheddar would be good! :)

  • Carolyn Reply

    How can I make this in an instant pot instead of crock pot?

  • Shazi jafri Reply

    Which cheese we can use instead Velveeta ?

    • Crissy Reply

      A cheddar and monterey jack blend would be good.

  • Doris Reply

    I substituted cheddar cheese for velvetta, adds a diffe Flavor to the soup!

  • Molly Shelton Reply

    Hi I’m confused on do you do step 2 at the beginning of 30 mins before it’s done lol someone help I’m making it now

    • Crissy Reply

      AFTER 3 ½ hours on high ORabout 6 hours on low, do step 2. Hope this helps! :)

  • Dany Reply

    This asks for velveeta… can I use regular cheese? Same amount?

    • Crissy Page Reply

      Hi Dany, that should work!

    • Jenny Reply

      Dany – How did this work out using a pound of shredded cheese instead of Velveeta? This is what I’d like to try.

    Made this last week. Best potato soup I’ve ever had. We had everything on hand but the onions and bacon so I didn’t bother with those two things and it was still amazing. Hearty, creamy, and the family wanted seconds! Definitely a staple soup in this kitchen.

      Hi Cassie, thank you for commenting and I’m so glad you love the soup! :)

    Makes me so hungry to look at photo of soup. Will need to save other 2 recipes. We love soup for supper in warmer weather, that way not eating heavy meal but eating nutritious food. Will enjoy this soup very much. When people get older often don’t want or need to eat big meal. I will be 77 in July and hubs was 75 this past Oct.
    Enjoy your weekend
