"This is an excellent slow-cooker recipe I got from my sister. It's very simple to prepare and easy to adjust with different add-ins and garnishes. I like to add 2 cups of diced cooked vegetables (peas, corn, carrots, beans, broccoli, etc.) and a chopped smoked sausage after the soup is pureed. You can garnish the soup when serving with a little sour cream, cooked, crumbled bacon, grated cheddar cheese, or chopped chives. "

This is an incredibly easy and very delicious recipe. I modified it slightly by adding a can of chicken broth before adding the rest of the water, but otherwise did not add or change anything. ...

I thought this was going to be an excellent soup. For my taste, there were too many leeks. Three leeks equalled almost two cups. I would approach the recipe again and add 1 leek and use milk ...

This was wonderfully easy. I used chicken stock (kitchen basics is the best!)instead of water and 1/2 and 1/2 in place of the evaporated milk. I took the suggestion of topping with shredded ch...

This soup is wonderful and easy. I threw some broccoli and cheddar cheese at the end and it was a big hit. My husband said he'd give it ten stars if he could. From one busy mom to another, thank...

I am the original submitter of this recipe, and I just wanted to add a note about blending the soup. Yesterday was the first time I tried putting it through the blender cold, and it was awful! ...

Wow! This was so simple and very good. I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5 only because it was way too salty and I had to add some regular milk (in addition to the evaporated milk) because it w...

Good recipe! Makes for a nice base to add items to. Thought it needed a little more salt & pepper, but you can add that to taste as you serve. It is good just by itself, but we have added just ...

Great base recipe. My slow cooker was filled to the brim. You will need a large crock pot for this one, or cut the recipe in half. I also added some corn startch at the end because it was sti...

This is so easy and so yummy! No leeks at my local market, so I used a Spanish onion instead, and added some sauteed carrot and celery after I mashed up the soup - no blender so I used a potato...
