Slow Cooker Potato Soup (Freezer Friendly)

I love easy-to-prep slow cooker* meals. Just dump everything in the pot and let the magic happen. Slow cooker potato soup is my go-to meal when I want to eat cheap and healthy, and it’s a perfect choice when I want something that feels cozy and homey.

Better still, slow cooker potato soup goes well with just about any topping I happen to have on hand. Green onions? Sprinkle ’em on there. Bacon crumbles? Toss those too. Shredded cheese? Why not? This recipe is flexible and versatile. If you want to amplify the flavor, consider using homemade chicken stock as a base instead of chicken broth.

Make Your Meal Ahead of Time

If you like to meal prep, slow cooker potato soup freezes beautifully. You can cut the veggies ahead of time, freeze them, and enjoy a lazy dinner later.

To make things easier for you, I’ve included freezer-prep instructions in my recipe. Feel free to double or even triple the recipe to make several dinners ahead of time so you always have some soup readily available for your family. When properly frozen, this slow cooker potato soup can last for up to 3 months.

I personally prefer to leave potato skins on when I make this recipe, but you don’t have to. And feel free to leave out the corn if you don’t have that on hand, or add some a chicken breast or two if you want to bump up the protein. This recipe is very forgiving with the ingredients you toss into the cooker.
