Creamy Potato Soup Recipe

When it's cold outside, nothing satisfies quite like a bowl of homemade soup. If you've never made homemade soup before, you need to start! It is so superior to the store-bought stuff, not only in taste...but also health benefits. I've shared my recipes for chicken noodle soup made from rotisserie chicken, my mom's famous hamburger soup and my favorite soup of all time, chicken tortilla soup.

I could probably eat soup every night. It's an easy, one-pot meal with little clean up. We all love potato soup in the diy beautify household. I prefer a chunky potato soup, but Mr DIY and the kids love creamy potato soup.

This recipe has been in the Long family since Mr DIY was a boy, and his mom taught him to make it. So in our house, when we're craving potato soup (or I don't want to cook dinner - wink), I prevail upon Mr DIY to make a big pot of his creamy potato soup. He does a fabulous job.

Here's the list of ingredients you'll need if you want to try this soup at home. Affiliate links are provided below; for your convenience. You can find my full disclosure policy here.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 4-6 potatoes, sliced thin (a mandolin slicer makes this job easier)
  • 3 stalks celery, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • water
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • small carton sour cream (optional)
  • immersion blender (makes getting the soup creamy a breeze)
  • garnishes (we love grated sharp cheddar, bacon, chives, parsley and seasoning salt)

We've had our immersion blender for almost 24 years. It was a wedding gift in 1992 (back when avocado green was trying to make a comeback!). It makes it so effortless to get really creamy soup because there's no need to pour hot soup into a blender, you do it right in the pot. Of course, if you don't have an immersion blender, you'll need to do it the hard way.

Making it creamy means all the chunks are gone. In other words, 'kid friendly'!!

At this point, you can add sour cream to the pot of soup for extra creaminess. We like to add it as a topping because some of us don't like sour cream.

Top with garnishes of choice and enjoy.

  1. This sounds really yummy! We like the lumps, so I could make the recipe and not blend it. And it's suppose to get really cold tomorrow! Perfect!

  4. This may sound stupid, but what are the green things you have in the picture to use as toppings. I don't think you said.

    1. Not at all, they're chives from my garden. I believe I listed them as optional toppings!
