A Potato Soup Day
While surfing the net one day, I came across this recipe for 'Slow Cooker Potato Chowder' on the GardenWeb site. It sounded so good that I just had to make it! It turned out as good as it sounded, although I did cut the ingredients in half so it wouldn't make as much. If you like potato soup then you have to try this recipe. Another plus is using the slow cooker...which I love! I didn't have any fresh parsley for garnish so just added some fresh ground pepper and a little cheese.
SLOW COOKER POTATO CHOWDER
10 cups raw potatoes, cubed
1 large onion,chopped
2 - 3 carrots, chopped
Couple handfuls frozen corn (or any veg. you want. I used cauliflower, it was very good)
3- 14 oz. cans of fat-free, reduced sodium , chicken broth
1 can condensed cream of chicken soup
1/4 tsp. black pepper
8 oz. fat-free cream cheese
In a 5 or 6 qt. slow cooker, mix potatoes, all vegetables, broth, soup, and pepper. Cook 8 to 10 hours on low.
Add cream cheese and cook another 20 minutes, stir occasionally.
Top with chopped scallions, crumbled bacon, and shredded cheese.
