- 2 1/2 lbs Yukon Gold potatoes (peeled and diced into 1" chunks)
- 1 large yellow onion (chopped)
- 3 tbsp garlic (minced)
- 1/2 cup bacon bits (chopped)
- 1 tsp chili powder
- 2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 4 cups chicken stock
- 1/3 cup all purpose flour
- 4 tbsp butter (salted)
- 2 cups half and half
- 1 cup sour cream
- Shredded cheddar cheese, chives, bacon bits, sour cream (Optional garnishes)
In a large crock pot add chopped Yukon gold potatoes, onion, garlic, chopped bacon, chili powder, salt, pepper, chicken stock and simmer on high heat for 6-8 hours or until potatoes are fork tender.
About 30 minutes before serving time, add butter, flour, and half and half to a nonstick skillet to cook the roux for the soup at medium heat. Whisk until smooth for 3-4 minutes. Add the roux into the slow cooker as well as the sour cream.
Use an immersion blender to combine everything thoroughly and the soup is smooth and creamy and at desired consistency.
Serve hot and top with sour cream, bacon, shredded cheddar cheese, and green onions.
