Mouthwatering Monday – Slow Cooker Potato Soup

Happy Monday everyone!

So with the crazy work week and all the chaos in the kitchen this weekend (see this blog post), I wasn’t able to whip up anything “mouthwatering” last week. I mentioned this on Twitter last night and my friend Carla generously offered to let me share her slow cooker potato soup recipe (adapted from two different recipes). She’d tweeted about it earlier in the week and I’d drooled over her Twitpic.  This is one recipe you can bet I’ll be making soon!

Slow-Cooker-Potato-Soup

INGREDIENTS

  • 8 cups peeled, diced potatoes
  • 1 small onion, finely diced
  • 6 ounces bacon, cooked, drained, crumbled
  • 8 ounces low fat cream cheese
  • 3 cans fat-free chicken broth
  • 1 can 98% fat free cream of chicken soup
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

DIRECTIONS

In a 4-quart or larger slow cooker, combine potatoes, onion and bacon. In large mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, chicken broth, cream of chicken soup and pepper, stirring until blended. Add soup mixture to slow cooker and stir to blend. Cover. Cook on low heat for 10 hours or high heat for 5 hours. Before serving, mash some of the potatoes to thicken the soup. Serve with a dollop of fat-free sour cream and chopped green onions or chives. Makes 8 servings.
