Pressure Cooker Cheesy Ham Chowder

Pressure Cooker Cheesy Ham Chowder is perfect for warming up on a cold or damp day. This simple creamy soup makes a hearty meal. This recipe combines two great flavor combinations –  ham and cheese and potato and cheese. While this soup is a great way to make use of leftover ham, it’s so hearty and comforting that you’ll want to buy or make ham just for the purpose of making this soup. Here’s how I make Pressure Cooker Cheesy Ham Chowder.

Ingredients

  • 2.5 lbs potatoes, peeled and cut into cubes or bite sized chunks
  • 1 lb ham, diced (leftover ham works, you can also use thickly sliced deli ham or even ham steaks)
  • 8 oz baby carrots
  • 32 oz chicken broth
  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 4 oz sour cream and onion dressing (I used Axelrod, if it’s not available you could also use onion dip)
  • 8 oz shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
