Crockpot Soups in Fall Flavors

With cooler weather comes the return of our favorite comfort foods. This year, put a twist on classic, cold-weather soups and stews by letting them slowly simmer in a crock pot. Crock pots are among the best kitchen inventions for cooks with busy lives. Whether warming cheddar ranch dip for parties or preparing pork roasts or soups for dinner, crock pots are staples in smart kitchens. If you’re new to the crock pot cooking or if you’re just looking to change up your food preparation routine, add these fall recipes to your cookbook:

 

 

 

 

Ingredients:

Loaded Baked Potato Soup (in a crock pot) Ingredients include:

  • 5 pounds russet potatoes, washed but not peeled, in ½ inch pieces
  • 1 medium or large yellow onion, diced
  • 5 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 8 cups chicken broth or stock
  • 16 ounces cream cheese (regular or low-fat)
  • 1 tablespoon seasoned salt (try Hickory Smoke Salt or J&D’s Bacon Salt to add more flavors)

Garnishes: bacon bits, shredded cheese, chives Add potatoes, onion, minced garlic, seasoned salt, and chicken broth to your crock pot. Cook on high for 6 hours or low for 10 hours. Add the cream cheese (softened) and either puree with an immersion blender until half the soup is blended or put half the soup and the cream cheese in an upright blender to mix and then re-incorporate. Garnish and serve. It’s that simple!


Preparation:

Crockpot Chicken Soup Play with this crock pot soup recipe. Some people like noodles in their chicken soup and others prefer a vegetable soup with chunks of chicken in chicken broth. The general ingredients include:

  • Chicken broth
  • Fresh veggies (carrots, celery, and onions), diced
  • Chicken breasts, cooked and diced
  • Chives
  • Garlic, chopped
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Noodles (optional)

Slice the chicken breasts while they’re raw, then cook them sear in a skillet. Put the chives, any other herbs you might enjoy, and the garlic into a food processor and mix. This will release the full flavors and, when you add it to your soup, give a flavor combination to impress the friends who eat your soup. Combine the remaining ingredients together and let your soup cook (covered) for 2 to 4 hours on a medium to high heat. You could also substitute beef broth for the chicken broth and cubed beef for the chicken for a great, savory beef stew.   There are many more delicious crock pot soups to try. Look into tomato basil soup with parmesan, as well as various chowders, for more great ideas. The three offered here should simply start your addiction to crock pot soups in fall flavors.
