How to Make Cajun Potato Soup

This soup is super easy to make. Brown the smoked sausage. Add the sausage, hash browns, chicken broth, cream of chicken soup, onion, and cajun seasoning. Cover the crockpot and cook. About 15 minutes before serving, add cream cheese to the soup. Stir until it is incorporated and serve.

  • If you are looking to reduce the calories in this soup, you can swap the andouille for some smoked turkey sausage. I’ve made with andouille and smoked turkey sausage. Both versions are great. You could even use a combination of andouille and smoked turkey sausage.
  • There is no need to thaw the hash browns before adding them to the crockpot.
  • I find that Philadelphia brand cream cheese melts the best in this soup.
  • If you are having trouble incorporating the cream cheese, use a whisk.

  1. This is delicious! One note – the shredded potatoes kind of disintegrate into the soup. I am using Potatoes O-brien for my next round so that there will still be some “chew” to it. I also think the meat could have been doubled, if you love a lot of sausage. I made this for my son and his roommates and they loved it!

    Since I am vegetarian, I’m giving it a go this second time around with vegetable broth and Beyond Meat hot sausage. I’m adding an extra dash of smoked paprika to the mix to give it that smoked flavor. Cooking right now!

  2. I used cheddar cheese soup instead of cream of chicken (not a fan) and cooked this on the stovetop. Added a can of soup (felt it needs some color & crunch). We loved it! Definitely a keeper!
