Creamy Potato Soup

We are seeing some cooler weather, by our standards, so I’m back
to making soup again! 

What? You don’t call 75 at 6am cooler? You do NOT
live in Steamy Paradise, do you?? We are counting down our days for our first
REAL cold front to come through!  

Now, THIS soup is yummy and I get really excited when I’m making
it … its just a little bowl of pure comfort food to me … yummmy …. yeah, I’m also sooo over turkey at this point!
The last few times I made this,
I switched it up a little and used the refrigerated steakhouse seasoned diced
potatoes …. I really liked the seasoned taters and plan to stick with that
from here on out!


Another thing I have to point out:
toppings. I love toppings, but then again, I love a loaded baked potato … so
that’s how you need to look at it. Do you like bacon, cheese, green onions on
your baked potato? Then, by all means, add those to your cup of soup.
Otherwise, eat it naked and make feel a little healthier for doing so 😉
So…enough
with the ramble … lets get cooking!!
2 bags (20 oz each) of steakhouse seasoned diced potatoes (or
you can use frozen potatoes)
2 cartons (32 oz) of chicken stock 
1 can cream o’ chicken soup 
1/2 onion, chopped fine OR a real generous shake of the
dehydrated onions
1/4 tsp ground black pepper 
1 8oz pkg of cream cheese … do not use fat free as it will
not melt down

As with ALL crockpot meals, just dump everything in the crockpot except the
cream cheese. Give a little stir, put the lid on and set it to high for 6 hours
or 8 hours on low (your choice).
After the time has gone by … take the lid off, cut up the
cream cheese in to cubes and toss those in the crock pot. Add the lid back on
and walk away for an hour or so, til the cheese has melted.

Because I like my soup creamy, I grab the immersion blender and go to town
making the soup nice and smooth. If you prefer, leave it chunky. It’s up to you
and I won’t judge! 🙂

IF the soup is too thick, you can add a little water, chicken broth or milk to
thin out a little.

Dish up, add your toppings if using, and dig in to this little bowl of comfort
… enjoy!
Looking forward to sharing
