How To Make Crock Pot Ham and Potato Soup

  1. Add all the ingredients except the heavy cream, flour, sour cream, and cheddar cheese to the crock pot.

  2. Cook until the vegetables are tender.

  3. Whisk heavy cream and flour to make a slurry.

  4. Add the slurry, sour cream, and cheddar cheese and cook until the soup thickens.


Add the slurry, sour cream, and cheese to the soup just a few minutes before it's ready to prevent curdling.


Refrigerate your soup for up to 4 days in an air-tight, freezer-safe container. For longer storage, freeze the soup for up to 3 months in an air-tight, freezer-safe container.

To reheat the soup, place it in a saucepan over medium-low and cook until heated through.
