This soup is what I make for my family every Christmas Eve. I love using the crock pot, especially during the holidays. To cut down on time, I always use frozen hash browns- (diced, not shredded) for the 6 cups of potatoes. I've also added cheddar cheese along with the Velveeta cheese.This soup is delicious served in bread bowls.
