Slow Cooker Loaded potato soup Recipe

Slow Cooker Loaded Potato Soup Recipe

As it gets colder, I start looking for new soup recipes.  This one tastes AMAZING!  Its a bit more labor intensive then I wanted.  I was looking for a dump in the slow cooker and go, but the roux that was made was simple and delicious and way better then adding a cream of something soup to thicken.  Even though I didn’t want to put forth the effort, I’m so glad I did!  Its a technique that can be used to thicken any soup pretty quickly too.  I can’t wait to try it in others.  This soup was so simple, and the bacon and cheese just set it off.  I made a huge pot, that I thought would last a few days, but it is almost gone the next day!
