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 cooked it on low for 5 hours which was more than sufficient and used a potato masher instead of dragging out my blender and dirtying another item. This left a few minor chunks of potato in the soup which added to its consistency. I definitely recommend this recipe.

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 cheese and bacon crumbles and made Beer Bread 1 from this site it was the perfect accompaniment. Thanks for the great recipe.

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, thanks for a keeper!
