Ideally soup is perfect for the fall months, but let’s be honest – it is really good ALL YEAR! I have been having a pretty strong pregnancy craving for soup and this definitely fit the bill. I have actually eaten it several days since making it. I top it with crunch bacon every time and I just cannot get enough. What I really love about this soup is that it does not require any heavy cream, which can get quite expensive.

Instant Pot Potato Soup


5 lb russet potatoes, peeled & cubed
5 cups chicken broth
4 T butter
1/3 cup softened cream cheese
1/3 cup sour cream
2 cups cheese, whatever you like!
salt and pepper to taste
bacon bits
OPTIONAL: 1 – 2 cups milk


  1. Add potatoes and chicken broth to Instant Pot.
  2. Set timer to 10 minutes.
  3. Quick release pressure when done.
  4. Mash potatoes. Add butter, cream cheese, and sour cream. Stir to combine.
  5. Add 2 cups cheese and stir until melted.
  6. If your soup is not thin enough, this is where you can add the optional milk. I did not add any because I think I accidentally used too much chicken broth!

Enjoy 🙂
