Simple Potato Soup for Fall

This is one of my favorite recipes to make, especially during the chilly months. It is super easy and doesn't require much effort! I hope y'all try it and love it as much as I do!

1 32oz. bag of frozen diced hash browns
1 32 oz box of chicken broth- I use low sodium
1 can of cream of chicken soup ,10 oz
1 pkg. cream cheese, 8 oz- I use the real stuff, not the fat free!
3 oz bacon bits 
2 cup shredded cheddar cheese + additional for garnish
salt and pepper to taste 

Put the hash browns in the crockpot.  Add in the chicken broth, cream of chicken soup and half of the bacon bits.  Add a pinch of salt and pepper.  
Cook on low for 7-8 hours or until potatoes are tender.  
An hour before serving, cut the cream cheese into small cubes. ( I found that if you add the cream cheese at room temp instead of cold that it mixes much better)  Place the cubes in the crock pot.  Mix a few times throughout the hour before serving.  
 Once the cream cheese is completely mixed in, it's ready to serve. Right before serving add in 2 cups of cheddar cheese and mix in to allow the soup to thicken
  Top with cheddar cheese and some additional bacon bits.

If you make it, I would love to hear what you think of it! PS- It always tastes better in a cute pumpkin bowl during fall!

Enjoy, y'all!
