Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Combine potatoes, chicken stock, onion, carrots, celery, flour, salt, and pepper in a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot®). Close and lock the lid. Select high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 10 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.

    Advertisement
  • Release pressure carefully using the quick-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove lid. Stir in corn and turkey ham. Add Cheddar cheese; stir until melted.

Cook's Notes:

Dice potatoes into smaller pieces for a creamier soup.

Bouillon, chicken soup base, or milk may be substituted for the chicken stock.

Processed cheese food (such as Velveeta(R)) or any of your preferred cheese can be substituted for the Cheddar cheese.

You can use 1 packet country gravy mix in place of the flour.

If potatoes are not done to your liking, cook on High/Soup setting (not pressure)for a few minutes more.

10.30.17 Lot of chopping but time well invested. Made this in an Instant Pot followed the recipe to the letter with the exception of using ham (Smithfield Anytime diced ham which was on BOGO) instead of turkey ham. It was a bit too thick after releasing the pressure so I did mix in more chicken stock and some of the reserved liquid from the can of corn. People have different preferences on soup or chowder texture so this is not a negative. This soup/chowder is loaded with wonderful flavor I wouldn t change a thing and most certainly I will be making this one again! Read More

I used smoked cooked ham steak in place of the turkey bacon and had home made chicken broth that I used. I enjoyed it very much but have one pet issue with the instructions. "6 potatoes" is not meaningful - potatoes come in all different sizes so just saying 6 is inadequate. Express the ingredient in cups or ounces not ambiguous. Read More

This was my first recipe attempt with my brand new instant pot. I followed the instructions with the exception of omitting the corn (didn't have any) using leftover Christmas ham instead of turkey ham and using less pepper. The consistency of the potatoes and other veggies was right on. Even though I used less pepper my kids still found it too "spicy." My instant pot took about 30 minutes to get to pressure. Even though this could just as easily be made on the stove I enjoyed making it with my IP. Read More

Another fabulous recipe to add to the Instant Pot repertoire. I made it as written except I didn't have any ham but I had smoky cheddar which gave it a hint of that flavour. I gave it a good stir which broke up the potato chunks and made it nice and thick. It tasted really spicy until I added the corn and cheese then the flavour really levelled out. Do you ever keep tasting something until you've basically had an entire serving? Five stars. Read More

My first test with the Instant Pot and I'm ecstatic about the results! I might use a little less pepper but this will definitely go into the rotation. I appreciated the reviewer who noted that there's quite a bit of chopping here so I planned the time accordingly. Thanks for a great recipe! Read More

Delicious! I made on this my stove top, instead of dealing with the hassle of my IP. I sauteed the veggies in butter to soften before adding the rest of the ingredients. I also added fresh garlic, roasted garlic granules and French thyme. I cut down on the salt, but would use even a little less next time. Read More

This was very good. It was my first attempt at using the Instant Pot so wasn't sure how it would turn out. At first I was disappointed because it did not look like soup. I took another reviewer's advice and put half of it into a blender and mixed it back together and voila it looked normal! Only changes I made was I added no corn and used bacon instead of turkey or ham. Delicious and hearty! Read More

The title definitely needs to be changed to disclude "chowder". This is a SOUP as written not a chowder! And with that being said- I was looking for a chowder recipe to make in my Instant Pot not a soup! So thankful I read prior comments- those made the difference. The recipe as written is perfect for a potato soup. The one thing I would change in the original- omit adding the extra salt with the pepper. The chicken stock & ham has PLENTY of salt to begin with! But because I wanted a thicker chowder I also added in an extra 1-2 Tbsp of flour & about 1/4-1/2 cup of heavy cream. Not ideal for the health-conscious but it made it WAY better. That also helped to reduce the overly salty taste. And next time I may use creamed corn instead of regular to cancel out adding in actual cream but I will also add in some bacon and possibly peas. I did love the generous portions of vegetables in this. Super quick & easy for the Instant Pot! The most time consuming process was chopping everything prior. The rest is a total breeze & the result was great with the couple of tweaks! Excellent comfort food & great for colder weather meals. Read More

Ok...I guess I like my potato soup more like a "creamy potato soup" because I couldn't leave it as it was when finished cooking. Big chunks of potato in a broth is not what I like. With that said I used an electric mixer and mixed it all up. That made it more like a mashed potato mixture...so then I heated some more chicken broth/stock (because I had some left anyway) and stirred that in. THEN added the corn ham and cheese and stirred until melted. I needed to add more spices (probably since i diluted it) so I added salt pepper a little onion powder and season-all. Made some cheese toast for the side and enjoyed it! In the future I'll leave out half of the onions and carrots when blending/mixing with the mixer because I blended ALL of the chunks out and you couldn't really distinguish the onions. Overall though a great recipe that I now know how to tweak! Read More
