To make these four variations of potato soup, you'll need potatoes, broth, various seasonings, and a selection of additional ingredients for each flavor.
Start by peeling and chopping the potatoes and simmering them in broth until they're tender. This will serve as the base for all four variations.
For a classic option, blend the base with butter, cream, and cheddar cheese for a rich and creamy classic potato soup.
For a loaded baked potato soup, add bacon, sour cream, chives, and more cheese to your base, creating a hearty and indulgent dish.
Add some heat with spices like cayenne pepper and chili powder, along with diced jalapeños, for a zesty and spicy potato soup.
Create an herbed variation by infusing your base with fresh herbs like rosemary, thyme, and parsley for a flavorful and aromatic soup.
Ladle each variation into bowls, garnish as desired, and enjoy four delicious takes on Slow-Cooker Potato Soup.
