The flavor is more balanced and the CREAMY texture is always perfect.
Here are some TIPS for making easy creamy tortellini soup in slow cooker:
You must use FULL FAT cream cheese to truly get the creamy flavor of this soup.
DON’T omit heavy cream with milk since that will affect the texture and flavor.
Tortellinis can be omitted if you want to enjoy just slow cooker creamy tomato soup.
You can also make this soup on the STOVETOP, following the same instructions and it will be ready in under 1 hour.
If you don’t have a hand-held immersion blender, you can pour the soup in a blender and puree it in there.
Either chicken broth or vegetable broth can be used.
Make sure to use LOW SODIUM broths or else your soup will become very salty.
You can garnish with whatever you like to enhance the flavor: cilantro, basil, rosemary, chives.
Leftovers can be stored in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 2 days.
