Easy soups make great quick easy dinners. Especially when you use your slow cooker or crock pot.

This creamy easy slow cooker potato soup recipe was chosen over many others recently when frugality met desperation.

I was desperate to avoid a trip to the grocery store. So decided to fix a simple supper with what was in the pantry – an onion, some potatoes, a can of evaporated milk, bouillon cubes. And the refrigerator – a couple of carrots, a few stalks of celery, some green onion, bacon pieces, and a small hunk of cheddar.

    How funny, my one real resolution was “to form a better relationship with my crock pot!” Its currently just taking up space in my kitchen and I never remember to use it either. This soup looks magnificent and it may be just what I need to start making good on that resolution. Thank you!

    As you know the summers here in Arizona are killers so I put my slow cooker on the patio and that’s where I slow cook all summer. It doesn’t add heat to the house and we can serve right from the cooker.I LOVE my slow cooker.I freeze leftovers and have a lunch ready in a flash.

      Sharla, I love your idea for putting your slow cooer on the patio so it doesn’t add heat to the house. I too love my slow cooker and don’t know what I would do without it. Made a yummy Southwest style pot roast in it for dinner last night that the guys loved.

    Is it supposed to read “cook on low 7-9 hours or on high for 4-6 hours?” Also, is a tablespoon of salt too much?

    • says

      Thanks for pointing out the cook times, Taylor. I’ve made the correction and appreciate it. As for the tablespoon of salt, that’s more
      of a personal call. I find that potatoes need a lot of salt, but others may disagree, so I’d say if you are concerned that it’s too much, use less and add more at the end if you feel it’s necessary.
