Crock Pot Soups for 2.

I got a crock pot for Christmas from my parents. Something I've wanted for awhile. The first thing I made in it, was potato soup! :-)


Here is the original recipe. And below is the recipe altered by me to serve 2 people. Perfect soup for a cold winter evening.

Potato Soup for 2 in Crock Pot
  • 3 large (or medium) potatoes, chopped
  • 1 half of medium onion, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon of pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon of minced garlic (I use the kind in a jar).
  • 1 tablespoon of honey (adds some sweetness).
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups of milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • Few shakes of Goya Adobe all purpose seasoning. (Red Lid).
Put all the ingredients into the crock pot, stir. Cover and cook on low for 5 or 6 hours.

After it was done cooking, I took a potato masher and mashed some of the potatoes up. So the soup had a creamy texture, but still had chunks of potatoes in it. Then I whisked the soup real good before I served it.

Top with cheese or croutons & enjoy!

Getting ready to cook for 6 hours!
Ready to eat!

I also made homemade Chicken Noodle Soup. Mmmm!


Chicken Noodle Soup for 2: Crock Pot Recipe
  • 2 chicken thighs (fully cooked), bones removed & cut into small pieces
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • Few shakes of Goya Adobe all purpose seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon of honey (Trust me!) 
  • 3 cups of water
  • 1 can of chicken broth
  • 1 half of a small onion diced
  • 1-1/2 cup of frozen mixed veggies (peas, carrots, lima beans).
  • Half a box of your choice of noodles, (All I had on hand were the mini shell kind).
Set aside noodles. Add all other ingredients, stir together & cook on low for 5-6 hours. One hour before it's done, add the noodles & 1 extra cup of water. Stir & let finish cooking. (I also added a potato because we had some around the house).

We still have leftovers of the chicken soup! It made a lot! And it was sooo good!

I've been fighting a nasty cold since last Thursday, which turned into a chest cold this past Monday, so hot soup was just what I needed!

Now... can't wait to make pulled barbeque pork & beef stew in my crock pot!
