This loaded potato soup is packed with tender chunks of potatoes, some veggies, bacon and cheeeese! When the colder weather hits, I love to make soups. This is a simple recipe and is considered the ultimate comfort food.


If you this Loaded Potato Soup check out some of my other soup recipes.

  • Chicken Enchilada Soup
  • Slow Cooker Bean and Bacon Soup
  • Thick and Creamy New England Clam Chowder
  • Ribeye Steak Chili
  • Sweet Corn Chowder


If you wanted to set it and forget it, you could totally do this in the slow cooker. But this comes together rather quickly in a big pot on the stove. I promise it will make you feel all warm and cozy inside on a chilly day!

I love using my Enameled cast Iron Dutch Oven to make this soup, keeps it nice and warm for a long time.
