We love soup around here and I love a simple soup recipe. While checking out another favorite blog, Shay from Mix & Match Mama (Yes, the same Shay from Mix & Match Family) I found this crazy easy recipe for slow cooker potato soup. She found it Pearls, Handcuffs and Happy Hour. (Love all the recipe sharing between blogs!)
I made a few tweaks for our version but the core of the recipe is the same.
Slow Cooker Potato Soup
1 (30oz) bag of frozen, cubed hash browns
3 (14oz) cans of chicken broth
1 can of cream of chicken soup
1 onion, chopped
1 (8oz) package of cream cream
Shredded cheddar cheese, green onion and/or bacon for toppings.
Add all ingredients, except the cream cheese and garnish, to crockpot. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 3-4 hours. (Now, my crockpot
The original recipe calls for shredded hash browns but we prefer the cubed version. Also, I have never added the sausage that Mix & Match Mama mentions. It is delicious without it and that is what works for us.
For a kicked up, spicier version, we add about a tablespoon of creole seasoning. (My favorite is Tony Chachere's). The extra spice was a huge hit with the hubby!
So there you have it...6 main ingredients. Yes, 6! That is a recipe I can get on board with. And you know what? It is delicious! A win, win in my book!
Now go whip up a batch this winter. You can thank me later :)
