Potato-y Cheese SoupFrom keni 2 years ago
- 4 medium potatoes, peeled and diced shopping list
- 4 cups chicken or veggie stock shopping list
- 2 stalks celery, sliced shopping list
- 1 onion, diced shopping list
- about 2 cups fresh broccoli florets shopping list
- 8oz very soft cream cheese(whipped works, too) shopping list
- 3 cups cheese, shredded(I recommend mostly a good cheddar, but that doesn't melt the best, so supplement it with a lil softer cheese like colby, if desired) shopping list
- 1T smoked paprika shopping list
- 1-3t cayenne(or sub a lil hot sauce) shopping list
- 1-2 cups cream or half and half shopping list
- kosher or sea salt to taste, and plenty of fresh ground pepper shopping list
How to make it
- Add stock, potatoes, celery, onion and broccoli to slow cooker.
- Cook on low for 3-4 hours until potatoes are very soft.
- Using an immersion blender, or batching in a regular blender, carefully blend so that there are no large chunks of veggies. You can blend as much, or as little as you want, but I blended the devil out of mine to get it to the same consistency as the restaurant's. :-)
- Add back to slow cooker and add cream cheese and stir until well melted. Use the blender, again, if you need to to blend it in.
- Add cheese, paprika and cayenne and stir and heat until melted. (I lowered my temp to "warm" for this, but it will depend on your slow cooker)
- Add cream, salt and pepper and stir, again. Serve when heated through.
- **This can easily be done on the stove top, too, I just have been trying to use my slow cooker as a cooking option even more, lately. I like the ability to leave it, even on days I'm home. It still equals less time in the kitchen for me. :-)

Cheesy potato goodness! Since I just made this for myself I blended the heck out of it (the fam likes chunky) and I enjoyed every smooth bite :) I used sharp cheddar. More in the IMI moremommyluvs2cook in Santa Fe loved it
