I had to post this recipe on here so I can find it. One of my good blogging friends shared it with me and it's absolutely delish. It's become one of our go to recipes for soup. Plus it's simple to make and it's cheap. Can't beat that. Thank you Katie for sharing it!!
Katie’s Potato Soup
1 quart sized box chicken stock or broth (or make your own with chicken bullion and water)
2-3 small cans of Cream of Chicken soup or 1 family sized can (you can use the Fat Free soup although the family size isn’t sold in fat free around here)
1-2 blocks of cream cheese (also you can use the fat free or reduced fat)
a few slices of cooked crumbled bacon (we use the lower fat Turkey bacon)
potatoes, cubed (as many or as few as you want, depending on how much you want to make, I usually use 8-10 potatoes and freeze some of the soup for later)
1 package of instant mashed potato flakes (if you want it thick like we like it)
You can just pile all the ingredients in the crock pot and cook until the potatoes are tender like I usually do, or you can boil the potato cubes in the chicken stock and add the rest of the ingredients and stir until the cream cheese is melted.
We have used diced ham instead of the bacon or turkey sausage even (not the best). We like to serve it with a sprinkle of yellow cheese and cut green onion, it tastes like Loaded Baked Potato soup.
Quick, cheap and easy!
