Add olive oil and onions to a large pot over medium-low heat and cook until onions are translucent, about 5 minutes.
Add garlic and cubed potatoes to the pot and stir to combine. Add the chicken stock, just enough to cover your potatoes, you may have some left over.
Simmer over low heat for 30 to 40 minutes until potatoes are extra soft and almost falling apart. Remove from heat.
Use an immersion blender to blend the mix into a puree. Mix in the heavy cream, cayenne, salt, and pepper.
Serve hot with crème fraîche, bacon crumbles, and chives.
