Slow Cooker Loaded Potato Soup

I know we’ve heard a hundred jokes about Pinterest and pinning things we’re never ever going to get around to doing. However, when it comes to amazing looking recipes… I “get around” to making them! (Ummm it’s FOOD! My “love language”!) I especially  love it when they are as quick, easy, and delicious as this “Snow day” Slow Cooker Loaded Potato Soup.

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 it’s 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!

Let’s do this!

Start out with one 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.

I’ve got a great week planned out here at my Nest! A new Craft, some more recipes, and pictures from the Baby Shower I hosted this weekend with penny-pinching party ideas! Please be sure to check back soon! Thanks for stopping by. I love visiting and I love hearing from you!

Have a GREAT day! Stay warm!
