This part creamy, part chunky loaded potato soup is the ultimate comfort food for fall and easily whipped up in the Instant Pot!
Loaded chunky potato soup. I can’t even point out my favorite word in that sentence – I just love them all.
Loaded chunky potato soup is one of life’s most popular comfort foods. It’s all I can think about as we welcome fall and nights start to cool off.
This soup is creamy, slightly chunky, full of flavor, and topped with all the best garnishes. We have green onions from the garden out back, and a little aged, organic gouda cheese.
I have to admit that of all the comfort foods out there, this is by far my favorite! Breakfast, lunch, dinner … I could eat this all day long.
Who needs anything else when you have potato soup?
If you have an Instant Pot, then all the better ~ because it’s literally an easy meal. There is no denying that we love our pot, it makes our dinners a breeze almost every, single night.
Loaded Chunky Potato Soup
This soup is easily made in the Instant Pot – though if you are without an Instant Pot it’s totally doable on the stove top as well (with a few minor changes).
If using the Instant Pot, use the saute feature to saute the carrots, onions and garlic for 3-4 minutes until the onions are clear. Turn the saute feature off and add the potatoes and broth.
Lock the lid on the Instant Pot & seal the valve. Cook the contents on manual (high) pressure for 10 minutes. Once you release the pressure, stick blend the contents being careful to leave some chunky potatoes remaining.
Add the heavy cream, and season with salt and pepper. Serve in bowls with shredded cheese, green onions, croutons and even chopped parsley. Or, go all out and slam on that bacon. You know you want to!
Enjoy this comfort food – it’s perfect for cold evenings!
I always love to double the recipe and store the second half in quart canning jars to give to family or friends who might appreciate a homemade meal.
