    My blog is long dead but here is my favorite quick and easy but so ridiculously tasty potato soup recipe.

    8-10 medium potatoes, peeled and diced
    1 small onion, chopped
    1/2 pound bacon, crisped, drained, and crumbled
    1 (8 oz) pkg. cream cheese, softened
    3 (14.5 oz) cans chicken broth or 1 lg. boxed container of broth
    1 can cream of chicken soup
    1/4 tsp. pepper
    (I usually add 1 tsp or so of dried oregano as well to taste and a bay leaf or two)

    Put the potatoes, onion, and bacon in the crock pot.
    I like to cook my bacon first, then carmelize the onions in the bacon fat and add all that delicious flavor on into the crock
    Combine the other ingredients (cream cheese, chicken broth, chicken soup, pepper) in a large bowl and whisk together.

    Add the mixture to the crock pot, and cook on low for 8-10 hours or high for 4-5 hours (time will vary depending upon your crock. Mine never takes this long.)

    Near the end of cooking, pour about 1/3 of the soup into the blender or use an immersion blender, and mix it. This helps the soup to thicken up. *Don’t skip this step! The soup will look runny and chunky, but you pop some of it in the blender and you will have this gorgeous thick soup!*

    -Add some cheese, or substitute the cream of chicken soup for cheese soup
    -Add corn or other veggies to make chowder

    Top with crumbled bacon bits, sour cream and chives or green onions, if desired
