Instant Pot Bacon Cheddar Potato Soup Recipe - From Val's Kitchen

I love rich and creamy soups, and potato based soups are some of my favorites. But, cooking the potatoes is not one of my favorite things, because if I’m doing it on the stove top it takes a while. So, I thought I’d try my hand at making some in the Instant Pot. I loved the resulting soup. It was super warming and filling, and was perfect for the chilly evening. Here’s how I made it.

  • 32 oz frozen diced potatoes
  • 2x 10.5 oz cans cream of chicken soup
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 4 oz shredded bacon
  • 8 oz shredded sharp cheddar
  • 32 oz hot water
  • 4 chicken boullion cubes
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder


Place the potatoes into the Instant Pot. (I lightly sprayed the pot with nonstick cooking spray first.)

Combine the boullion cubes with the hot water and then add that to the pot.

Add the cans of cream of chicken soup, cream cheese, bacon, onion powder and garlic powder.

Stir well.

Set the pressure cooker to soup, which is 10 minutes.

Once that is finished, open the Instant Pot and add the shredded cheddar.

Set to manual 5 minutes and cook, stirring occasionally.

Serve immediately.

The most unnecessary words of the entire post: Serve immediately. This looks awesome. I’d make this in the heat of summer, even, and not even care about heating up the house from the oven.
