Slow Cooker Sweet Potato Chowder Recipe

Need something quick for dinner? How about our Sweet Potato Chowder? If you make in the Instant Pot it only takes 5 minutes to make!

Being able to throw dinner in the slow cooker and forget about it has got to be one of the best feelings! This Sweet Potato Chowder is full of delicious vegetables making it the perfect meal for your family!

You can also make this meal MEATLESS! Use Vegetable broth, don’t add the bacon, and you are good to go! It will still taste amazing!

Now this recipe calls for whole milk, but if you are looking to make it healthier, go for the skim milk. It won’t make it as creamy, but it don’t change the taste much. I think it is still delicious.

If you don’t like certain vegetables that I put in, you can easily sub them out. One of the easiest things I find to sub into this recipe is normal potatoes! The sweet potatoes and normal ones together taste amazing!

If you have an Instant Pot, but sure to watch our video on our YouTube Channel on how to make it in the Instant Pot!

do i cook the bacon first?

For this recipe, we do recommend that you cook the bacon first, then add it to the soup. If you don’t, the soup will have a lot of bacon grease in it, and the texture will be a little funny.

You also want to be sure that your bacon is thoroughly cooked through, which is another reason why we recommend cooking it separately first, then adding it.
