I stumbled upon this baby one day while day dreaming my life away on Pinterest. (Ya know…pinning unrealistic photo’s of what I wish my house looked like if no one lived it in, and I had a million dollars! Thank you perfect women of the world. You’re precious to us!)

Turns out this a Paula Deen recipe. (I’ve tweaked it just a bit…as always! Lol) Regardless… I love this soup! It’s 100% pure comfort food at its best.

It’s SO simple to make! Even the cooking impaired …(Not going to name names. So don’t worry Melinda!)… can make this soup. If you can open a bag and a can, dump it in a crock pot, this soup is for YOU!

How To Make Slow Cooker Loaded Potato Soup

Start out with a bag of frozen country potatoes! (Step one, bag opening complete!)

Add one can cream of chicken soup and 1/2 cup chopped onion. (I didn’t have an onion on hand, so I just tossed in a handful of dried onion flakes.They’re always a great “Plan B” when you don’t have a fresh onion on hand.) 

We are half way done. I kid you not.

Next, it’s time for more mad can opening skills. Add 2 (14 oz.) cans of chicken broth, and 1/3 tsp. black pepper. Cover and cook on low for 5 hours. Tick-Tock…Tick-Tock…Tick-Tock….

Now, stir in 8 oz. block of cream cheese and cook an additional 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. (At this point you’ll be standing there hovering over it… drooling!)

Time to load ‘er up! Ladle soup into a nice big bowl and top it off with grated cheese, crumbled bacon, and diced green onion.

There you have it! QUICK! EASY! DELICIOUS!

The perfect dinner and a great recipe for beginner cooks, busy moms, or your starving college student. This soup is always a favorite at my Nest.

It’s gone in minutes. Our middle son loves this soup so much he requested it for Christmas Eve this year. His wish was granted! (Cause I’m awesome like that! I’m all about making dreams come true. Lol)

I love to pair this comforting soup with a big green salad and a pan of my buttery sweet corn bread. You can find the recipe for that yummy mouth-watering corn bread by clicking HERE!   There you have it. Dinner is served!

Great recipe right? You have got to add this to your weekly meal plan. I promise you won’t be disappointed. Let me know how you liked it.

Hi Virgia! Thanks so much for sharing with us here at my Nest! I know it takes time out of your day to stop back by and leave a review and I sincerely appreciate it. I love this soup too. Especially since it's just a "dump" and go kind of meal and it doesn't heat up your entire kitchen! I hope you have a great weekend and stop back by soon! Happy Nesting! ~Norine
