Slow Cooker Cajun Potato Soup - easy potato soup jazzed up with cajun seasoning and andouille sausage. Frozen hash browns, chicken broth, andouille sausage, cajun seasoning, chicken soup and cream cheese. SO easy and SOOOO good. Everybody went nuts over this! Can use smoked turkey sausage instead of andouille. Serve with some crusty bread for an easy weeknight meal!
In a large skillet over medium heat, cook sausage until brown. About 5 minutes. Add to slow cooker.
Add everything except for the cream cheese to the slow cooker. Cook for 8-10 hours on low.
About 15 minutes before serving, add cream cheese. Stir until melted and thoroughly combined.
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.
