Crockpot Potato Soup
adapted from http://pearls-handcuffs-happyhour.blogspot.com/2011/03/outback-aint-got-nothin-on-me.html
1 30oz. bag of frozen, shredded hash browns
3 14oz. cans of chicken broth
1 can of cream of chicken soup
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1 T pepper
1 package of diced ham (I use John Morrell)
1 pkg. cream cheese (do not use fat free, it wont melt)
In a crockpot, combine everything EXCEPT for the cream cheese. Cook for 6-8 hours on low heat. About 1 hour before serving, add cream cheese and keep heated until thoroughly melted.
Garnish with your favorite toppings. We added some shredded cheddar and green onions. Yummy!
