Cheesy Potato Soup

Take out the crockpot because it's that time again.......homemade stew, chili and soup. Say so long to those hot summer days and say hello to the comfort foods of fall and winter.    Kudos to my niece Christine for sharing this crockpot Cheesy Potato Soup recipe.

Start this dish before you  leave for work in the morning. Takes just a few minutes to prepare. Serve with some crusty bread and a grilled chicken or shrimp side salad and you're good to go.  It doesn't get better than this.  Enjoy.

Cheesy Potato Soup

  • 1 30oz. bag of frozen diced hash browns
  • 1 32 oz box of chicken broth
  • 1 can of cream of chicken soup (10 oz)
  • 1 pkg. cream cheese (8 oz, not fat free)
  • 3 oz bacon bits 
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese 
  • salt and pepper to taste 
Put the potatoes in the crockpot. Add in the chicken broth, cream of chicken soup and half of the bacon bits. Add a pinch of salt and pepper.
Cook on low for 7-8 hours or until potatoes are tender.
An hour before serving, cut the cream cheese into small cubes. Place the cubes in the crock pot. Mix a few times throughout the hour before serving.
Once the cream cheese is completely mixed in, it's ready to serve.
Top with cheddar cheese and some additional bacon bits.
