Might Just Be the Worlds BEST Potato Soup!

As many of you know, I don't like to cook.  But I am a mom of three growing boys, two of whom are teen-agers so I cook.  Every week night, I cook. I love easy recipes.  I love the dump and go kind of recipes.  (You know, open a bunch of this and that, dump it in a pot and it makes a delicious easy meal)
I hate to tend a stove, an oven, a boiling pot!  I'd rather clean up a mess than cook a meal.  All this being said leads me to the reason I write this post.  I found an AWESOME recipe for Loaded Baked Potato Soup.  It's easy.  It's delicious!  It's comfort food!  You can make it in a crockpot or on the stove top.

Here is the recipe:


16 oz bag frozen cubed potatoes
2   3 oz jars of real bacon pieces
8 oz cream cheese, softened
12 oz sour cream
16 oz milk
12 oz chicken broth
6-8 green onions, chopped
Colby-Jack cheese, shredded
Bread Boule (optional)

In a large pot or crockpot add potatoes, a 3 oz jar of bacon pieces, softened cream cheese, sour cream, milk, chicken broth, 3/4 of chopped green onions, salt and pepper to taste.
Cook on low heat, stirring often for approximately 1 hour in large pot (2-3 hours if using crockpot).
Serve hot in bowl or bread boule topped with green onions, bacon pieces and shredded cheese.

serves about 6 people, so make a double batch if you want leftovers or have hungry teen-aged boys!
