How to Make Cheesy Potato Chowder

To make Potato Chowder, start by washing and peeling 6 medium-sized potatoes. Cut them into small cubes and place them in the slow cooker. Add 1 chopped onion, 2 minced garlic cloves, and 1 tablespoon of dried rosemary leaves to the slow cooker.

In a separate bowl, mix 4 cups of chicken broth and 1 cup of heavy cream. Pour the mixture over the potatoes in the slow cooker. Stir everything together until well combined.

Cover the slow cooker and cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 4-5 hours. Once the potatoes are tender, use an immersion blender to puree the soup until smooth. If you don’t have an immersion blender, you can transfer the soup to a blender in batches and blend until smooth.

Add 2 cups of shredded Swiss cheese to the slow cooker and stir until melted and well combined. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Serve hot and garnish with additional shredded cheese, fresh rosemary leaves, and crumbled bacon if desired. This Potato Chowder is perfect for a cozy night in or as a comforting meal during colder months.

Tips and Variations for Slow Cooker Cheesy Potato Chowder

Here are some tips and variations to help you customize your Chowder:

– For a creamier texture, add a cup of heavy cream or half-and-half during the last hour of cooking.
– If you prefer a chunkier soup, don’t blend the potatoes completely. Leave some chunks for added texture.
– You can substitute dried rosemary leaves with other herbs such as thyme or oregano, depending on your preference.
– To make the chowder more filling, add cooked bacon bits or diced ham to the soup before serving.
– If you want to make this recipe vegetarian-friendly, use vegetable broth instead of chicken broth and omit the bacon or ham.
– For a spicier kick, add a pinch of cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes to the soup.
– If you’re short on time, you can also cook this recipe on high for 3-4 hours instead of low for 6-8 hours.

Experiment with these tips and variations to create your own unique version of Slow Cooker Cheesy Potato Chowder that suits your taste buds.
