Creamy Potato Soup

Paula Deen Crockpot Potato Soup

I LOVE potato soup and I've tried many recipes, but usually they take a ton of time to cook the potatoes, let them cool, then slice and dice, and finally make a soup with them.
Well my friends....welcome to my favorite potato soup recipe yet!
This was SO easy and quick, just throw it all in the crock pot!
And unlike the other potato soup recipes out there, it wasn't heavy and didn't leave me feeling sick or like I ate too much.
It was just right! 

To make this you will need...
1 (30 oz.) bag frozen hash-brown potatoes (I use the squared, southern style)
2 (14 oz.) cans chicken broth
1 (10.75 oz.) can cream of chicken soup
1 Tbsp onion powder
1/3 tsp. ground black pepper
1 (8oz) package cream cheese (softened)
Garnish: minced green onion

1. In a slow cooker, combine potatoes, broth, soup, onion powder, and pepper. 

2. Cover, and cook on low for 5 hours.

3. Stir in cream cheese, cook 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until combined. 

4. Garnish with green onion.

 You could even have a "toppings bar" at your party, letting your guests choose from all sorts of toppings for their soup...shredded cheese, chives, bacon bits, sour cream, etc. Then serve with crackers or bread.
