One of the ladies in our church quilting group brought this savory potato soup to a meeting, and everyone loved how the cream cheese and bacon made it so rich. It's easy to assemble in the morning so it can simmer on its own all day. —Anna Mayer, Fort Branch, Indiana

Ingredients

  • 8 cups diced potatoes
  • 3 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) chicken broth
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted
  • 1/3 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, cubed and softened
  • 1/2 pound sliced bacon, cooked and crumbled, optional
  • Minced chives, optional

Directions

  1. In a 5-qt. slow cooker, combine the first 5 ingredients. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours or until potatoes are tender.
  2. Add cream cheese; stir until blended. Garnish with bacon and chives if desired.
