One of my other favorite things to make in it is Cheesy Potato Soup. Mmm, mmmmmm!
What you'll need:
Well a crock pot/ slow cooker for starters :)
(1) 32oz bag of southern style potatoes - thawed
1/2 an onion, diced
1 cup of water
1 cup of milk (not pictured)
(1) 32oz carton of chicken broth
3 tbps of Flour
(1) 8oz bag of cheddar shredded cheese
Real bacon bits (for the end)
Chives or Green Onion (for the end)
I always spray my pot with Pam first.
Pour in the potatoes, chicken broth, and diced onion.
This is also when you can add the diced celery, if you'd like.
I have a littler crockpot so I typically only use about 3/4 of the bag of potatoes and 3/4 of the carton of broth noted.
Cook on low for 6-8 hours.
In a small bowl, mix together the flour and milk. Wisk until blended and then add to the pot and stir.
Put temperature to high and let thicken for 20-30 minutes.
It will look cloudy like shown in the picture.
After the 20-30 minute period, soup should be getting thicker.
Return temperature to a low setting. Add the bag of cheddar shredded cheese and stir into the pot.
I tend to like mine really cheesy so sometimes add extra above the 8oz, hehe! :)
Let cook an additional 20 minutes. Cheese will melt & soup will continue to thicken.
TA-DA! Mmm... so yummy!
I like to add the optional real bacon bits and chives to mine.
It's even a hit with my five year old. :)
