crock pot potato soup.


I guarantee this recipe will 
1. make any cold evening a little warmer.
2. make your house smell incredible.
3. make all the bellies in your family very happy.  

Ingredients
  • 2.5 lbs russet potatoes, diced, NOT peeled
  • 2.5 tbsp Tastefully Simple garlic garlic*
  • 1/2 yellow onion, chopped
  • 32 ounces chicken broth or stock 
  • 8 ounces cream cheese (I used 1/3 less fat)
  • bacon, sour cream, chives or shredded cheese for garnish

*I didn't have this seasoning so I recommend using these ingredients to taste:
  • 2 spoonfuls minced garlic
  • 1/4-1/2 t garlic powder
  • 1/4-1/2 t. dried dill
  • 1/4-1/2 t. dried basil
  • Some salt & pepper
Instructions
  1. Combine potatoes, seasonings, onions and chicken broth in your crock pot.
  2. Cook on low for 8 hours, or on high for 5 hours.
  3. Put cream cheese in crock pot with the potato mixture. With potato masher, mash up all ingredients together.**
  4. Serve warm topped with bacon, sour cream, shredded cheese & chives. Just make sure the cream cheese is completely melted and combined ;)

**The recipe suggested using a food processor to puree the soup. You can do this if you'd rather it not be so chunky. I personally enjoyed it chunky, and it made fewer dishes to wash too :)
