Creamy Chili Soup #slowcooker

Jump to Recipe

When you can’t decide if you want a creamy soup or a chili stew – you put them together in the slow cooker and see what happens! Well turns out you get this amazing Creamy Chili Soup and everyone goes back for seconds! I was very pleasantly surprised how well this came together, so rich and creamy. Definitely a hearty soup for the colder weather.

This one does require a slow cooker (at least 7qt sized) and an immersion blender (some call this a stick blender). While most of the time I say you can use an immersion blender or a regular blender – this one would be very difficult to transfer. And really an immersion blender is such a valuable tool to have in your kitchen. I use mine several times a week. It makes great sauces, soups, mashed veggies.

I served this with some Cheddar Bay Biscuits. It was a toss-up between that and some Jalapeno Cheddar Cornbread. You could also go with some salad or really any kind of roll or bread. It is a very hearty soup, so it doesn’t necessarily need a side dish.

I am a lot of things – wife, mother, daughter, sister, niece, friend, business owner, volunteer, and a home chef. I have lived in the Pacific Northwest for most of my adult life and plan to stay forever – while traveling a lot. I am currently running a General Contracting business with my husband out of our home. Between us we have 6 kids in our blended family, 4 of which live with us full-time. We are a highly active family during the week – sports, bands, dance classes – as well as on the weekend – camping, hiking, car shows, and concerts. We like to go go go, but when it comes to dinnertime, we mostly like to dine-in! I love to create things with my hands and have probably tried almost every craft out there at least once or twice. Cooking is a huge part of my life. No matter what anyone says – you can taste the difference in the food if it was made with love. Some of the simplest meals can be elevated so much when they are cooked with care. Pouring love into the meals I create brings a feeling of fulfillment and satisfaction, not only to me, but to the people I care about.
