Tips for Perfect Creamy Potato Soup

  • Cut your potatoes into pieces no larger than ¾” and try to keep them around the same size for even cooking. No one wants a bite of raw-inside potato chunks in their soup!
  • To achieve a velvety texture, consider pureeing about half of the soup using an immersion blender or a regular blender. This technique adds creaminess without completely eliminating the satisfying chunks of potato.
  • Remember, it’s best to add the crispy bacon topping after you’ve pureed some of the soup. We don’t want to blend the bacon 😉.
  • For an extra depth of flavor, I highly recommend using ancho chili powder. It adds a subtle yet exciting kick to the soup. Start with ¼ teaspoon and adjust according to your taste preference.

Certainly! If you prefer a vegetarian version, you can substitute the bacon with vegetarian bacon or omit it altogether. The soup will still be deliciously creamy and flavorful.
