I’m a big fan of cheesy potato soups. My add-in meat of choice is typically ham, but this recipe looked so fun, EASY, and different that I was excited to give it a try! Sometimes I feel like there aren’t any new soup ideas out there, but this one I tweeked slightly from Miss in the Kitchen had a delightfully new flavor! It was a win in our house! My favorite thing about this crock-pot soup is that you don’t have to do any last minute roux to thicken it.
Cheesy Kielbasa and Potato Soup
- About six medium Yukon Gold Potatoes, cut up
- 26 oz Turkey Polska Kielbasa, diced
- 1 large onion, diced
- 1 – 2 bell peppers, diced
- 2 1/2 cups chicken broth
- 2 cups heavy cream
- 1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1 teaspoon oregano
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
Put potatoes, kielbasa, onion, and peppers into the crock-pot. Stir together the broth, cream, cornstarch, and seasonings. Pour over the veggies/meat. Stir it all together and cook on high 3-4 hours or low 5-6 or until potatoes are nice and tender. When you’re almost ready to eat, stir in the cheddar cheese and enjoy!
