Potato soup is one of my favorite soups. It’s not super expensive, the main ingredient is potatoes and you put it in a slow cooker and let it cook.
You add your meats, bacon or ham, cheese and a few other ingredients.
A great dish in the Fall, tailgating or whenever. Great way to use up left overs.
To make this meal quicker, you can use microwaved potatoes.
6 potatoes (I use russets)
2 cans chicken broth
1/4 teaspoon pepper
8 oz cream cheese
1 cup chopped ham
8 ounces Colby cheese
1 tablespoon corn starch
Peel and cut the potatoes into small 1/4″ size cubes and place into slow cooker.
Add the cans of chicken broth and pepper and stir.
Add the cream cheese and ham. The ham should be cut into tiny chunks. Adjust the amount of ham you want if you like less or more.
Add in Colby cheese and corn starch and stir.
Allow to cook for 6-8 hours. After that time, you can take your potato masher and mash a few of the potatoes.
