Spicy Potato Soup

This is a nice spicy little spin on Potato Soup. The Italian sausage gives it a flavor and you can adjust it to your own taste (like or dislike) of spiciness by just adding less or no red peppers and buying plain rather that hot Italian Sausage.

  • Yield: 8 servings


  • 1 pound(s) Potatoes cleaned, diced but not peeled
  • 1/2 cup(s) Potato buds or flakes used for thickening, so may need a little more or a little less


Clean and dice potatoes. I cook with skins on but if you prefer you can peel.

Add water to very large cooking pot. Add potatoes. You can add the onions and celery while boiling.

Cook until potatoes are tender.

While potatoes are cooking fry up the hot Italian sausage.

Pour in chicken broth and heavy cream. Add Italian sausage, crushed red pepper and spices to taste.

Add potato bud's/flakes until soup is slightly thick. Do this slowly since it takes a couple of seconds for the buds to thicken it up.

I transfer to crock pot at this time, since you do not have to worry about burning... but you can simmer on stove top if like.

Let simmer for at least a couple of hours in a crock pot and serve with sour cream, chopped green onions and bacon bits sprinkled on top.
