DIRECTIONS

  • Combine broth, potatoes, onion, celery, carrots and spices in a Crockpot. Cook on high for 4 hours, low for 8 hours.
  • Heat cream cheese in the microwave for about a minute to melt. Pull out about 2 cups of potatoes and broth and use an immersion blender to mix the soup into the cream cheese easier.
  • If you don't have an immersion blender, then pull out some potatoes and broth and mash it with a potato masher or fork until the cream cheese has thinned out.
  • Pour the cream cheese mixture back into the soup, and allow the soup to cook on low for about 30 – 45 minutes or until the cream cheese melts into the soup, stirring occasionally. At first the soup will look cloudy on top, but it will melt into the soup to make it creamy. Taste and add more seasoning if needed.
  • Serve it up with cheese, bacon, chives and anything else you want to add on top!
