Amber's Creamy Potato Soup

Soup is one of those foods I could eat everyday, so I'm always on the lookout for new soup recipes.  Somehow I missed this one on Pinterest, but my Pinterest loving daughter found it and it quickly became a family favorite.  I think it's safe to say it's become a favorite of many people.  Remember when the broom ball craze hit?  I served this soup to the hungry teens and every last creamy drop was devoured.  And a request for the recipe was in my inbox the next day.  Then we made this soup for a "thank you" meal that was delivered to Emily and Nick's personal finance teacher.  The next day, another request for the recipe in my inbox.

It's not paleo, low-carb, low sodium, non-gmo.  It's not AIP approved, THM, low fat, whole food based, organic.  It's not dairy free and I don't think it's gluten free.  It's simply SUPER fast to assemble and even more super good.  Once you pull out the ingredients and crock-pot, it only takes 5 minutes to assemble.  It's the perfect soup for those crazy days of homeschooling when you're everywhere, but home.

First gather your ingredients.

2 bags frozen hash brown cubes
2 cans cream of chicken soup
2 T. chicken granules
7 cups water
1/2 t. freshly ground pepper
1 onion

Dice the onion.  Add everything to crockpot.  Turn to high and let it cook 5 hours.  I don't even stir it until a couple of hours into the cooking time.  But, if you're going to be gone all day, then give it a quick stir and cook on low.  *The original recipe called for chicken broth instead of water and granules.  Either way it tastes great.  I just happen to have on hand the chicken granules more often than chicken broth.

Since you have out the knife and cutting board, slice up some green onions for the topping.  Refrigerate until serving time.

 In the last 30 minutes of cook time, add 2 bricks of cream cheese.  Stir until melted.  Serve in soup bowls with shredded cheddar cheese, bacon bits, and green onions.

Last, but not least, if you can point me towards any other delicious, easy soup recipes, please do!  Thanks.

    You can be quite flexible with the vegetables you add; it's a great way to use up Parmesan rinds and tastes amazing
