1 1/2cupsshredded cheeseoptional
LOAD IT UP: Shredded cheese, chopped green onions, cooked crumbled bacon, chopped parsley
Turn your Instant Pot on to medium on the Saute setting, add butter and melt.
Add the onions and garlic and cook until transparent and tender, about 3 minutes. Watch that the garlic doesn't get dark or it will be bitter
Add the broth, cream of chicken soup and potatoes. Stir.
Place lid on pot and turn valve to seal. Cook on high pressure for 12 minutes.
When the time is up, do a controlled quick release, a full quick release may get messy
Remove 1 Tbsp of hot broth from the pot, and stir in the flour, mixing until smooth paste forms. Slowly stir the milk into the flour/broth paste until combined. This will be your thickener.
With an immersion blender, puree potato until smooth. For a more rustic soup use a potato masher, leaving larger pieces of potato. Stir in the milk/flour thickener.
Set the Instant Pot to the Saute setting and simmer for about 3 minutes or until soup is the desired consistancy.
Taste and adjust salt and pepper to your personal preference. I like a good sprinkle of freshly ground pepper on mine!
CROCK POT COOKING INSTRUCTIONS: You can make this in the crock pot by cooking on low for 8 hours or until potatoes are tender. Proceed with the flour/milk mixture, and cook and additional 30 minutes on high to thicken.
