An easy and delicious creamy potato soup recipe that can be made in just one pot! Loaded with bacon and creamy potato goodness, this is a favorite comfort food in my household.

Ingredients

  • 6 strips (uncooked) bacon cut into small pieces
  • 3 Tablespoons butter unsalted or salted will work
  • 1 medium yellow onion chopped
  • 3 large garlic cloves minced
  • cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 ½ lbs gold potatoes peeled and diced into pieces no larger than 1”
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1 ½ teaspoon* salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon ancho chili powder**
  • 2/3 cup sour cream
  • Shredded cheddar cheese, chives, and additional sour cream and bacon for topping optional

Instructions

  • Place bacon pieces in a large Dutch Oven or soup pot over medium heat and cook until bacon is crisp and browned.
  • Remove bacon pieces and set aside, leaving the fat in the pot.
  • Add butter and chopped onion and cook over medium heat until onions are tender (3-5 minutes).
  • Add garlic and cook until fragrant (about 30 seconds).
  • Sprinkle the flour over the ingredients in the pot and stir until smooth (use whisk if needed).
  • Add diced potatoes to the pot along with chicken broth, milk, heavy cream, salt, pepper, and ancho chili powder. Stir well.
  • Bring to a boil and cook until potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork (about 10 minutes).
  • Reduce heat to simmer and remove approximately half*** of the soup to a blender (be careful, it will be hot!) and puree until smooth (half is about 5 cups of soup, but just eyeballing the amount will be fine. Alternatively you can use an immersion blender.).
  • Return the pureed soup to the pot and add sour cream and reserved bacon pieces, stir well.
  • Allow soup to simmer for 15 minutes before serving.
  • Top with additional sour cream, bacon, cheddar cheese, or chives. Enjoy!
