Creamy Potato Soup

Another great Pinterest find!  I admit, I was a little skeptical about this recipe when I came across it.  But, it came out great (after a couple minor tweaks, of course :)!  And who doesn't love a great Crock Pot recipe!? It was super creamy and ended up having great flavor (I did have to add quite a bit of salt and pepper).  Next time I'm going to add carrots and maybe another veggie or two.
Creamy Potato Soup
6 Servings

30-32oz frozen shredded hash browns
5-6 cups Vegetable broth
1/2 cup diced onion
1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
10 oz Cream of Potato soup (I made my own using this recipe)
1 pkg 1/3 less fat cream cheese (you could use full fat, but do not use fat free)
salt and pepper to taste
shredded Cheddar, bacon, chopped scallions, etc for garnish

1.  Combine hash browns, broth, onion, red bell pepper, black pepper and potato soup into a crock pot.  Mix well, cover and cook on low for 6 hours.

2.  Add in the cream cheese and stir until it is all melted.  Taste soup and season with salt and pepper.  Cover and continue cooking for another 1-2 hours on low.  Ladle soup into bowls and garnish with whatever your heart desires.  Enjoy!
