Dill Pickle Potato Chip Soup

Dill Pickle Potato Chip Soup
Share the food curiosity!

When a weekly supper challenge involves “chips”, Dill Pickle Potato Chip Soup was the first thing that came to my mind. Chips are a comfort food. It only seems natural to pair comfort food with comfort food, in a soup. Luckily, I was inspired by the most unique soup I had ever tasted, a Dill Pickle Soup at the Huckleberry Café in Wainwright, Alberta. Oh yum! It was so delish!

Converting the idea of a soup I had never made before and converting the recipe to include potato chips is a challenge. Plus, I didn’t want to ruin the amazing memory of a great soup I enjoyed. Haha! Hence “supper challenge!”

A small portion is great as an appetizer, but the dish in a larger portion makes a great meal as well. Cook this recipe with me!

  • Large pot with lid


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 medium onion diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic finely diced
  • 2 medium carrots diced
  • 2 lbs of potatoes peeled and chopped to ½”cubes
  • ¼ cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon celery salt
  • ¼ teaspoon paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 180 g bag of dill pickle chips (I used Old Dutch – “regular cut” chips – kettle or thick cut ruffle seem too thick crushed
  • ¼ cup dill pickles finely diced
  • ½ cup dill pickle juice
  • 4 cups 1 Litre pre-mixed, ready made chicken broth
  • 2 cups water to desired thickness
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • In a large pot, melt butter and cook onions and garlic on medium heat until fragrant.
  • Add potatoes and carrots to cook until tender.
  • On the heat, stir in flour so that veggies are coated in flour. This helps thicken the soup later.
  • On the heat, add spices: celery salt, paprika, pepper, cayenne pepper and mustard.
  • On the heat, add crushed dill pickle chips and pickles
  • While stirring, slowly add dill pickle juice. Slowly add chicken broth.
  • Allow to simmer for 30 minutes or more. Ensure it is stirred every 10 minutes or so.
  • Add water and season to taste and desired thickness. I love a nice thick chowder consistency on cold days, but adjust to your desire!
