Slow Cooker Loaded Baked Potato Soup

Slow cooker loaded baked potato soup recipe is one of my very favorites! It is cold outside and a soup that can be slow cooked is just what is needed this winter season. The sun was actually out today but it was freezing! I always question every year why I live in Utah and not somewhere warm. We all stay hibernated inside of our houses and count down the days until spring. We have almost made it through January and spring is just right around the corner.

There is one thing that I look forward to every winter and that is a good soup! They become a weekly meal at our house and seem to warm you right up. Potato Soup is my favorite. But this one is the best!

I have a couple of favorite potato soups on the blog that I was able to adapt from. This making it the ultimate loaded potato soup. I still wanted the tender potato chunks in the soup because it resembles a baked potato more. You can always blend it together and make it smooth. The flavor is amazing!

Baked Potato Soup Ingredients:

One of my favorite parts of this soup are the toppings. Pile it on with cheese, bacon and green onions and you are good to go! It totally reminds me of a baked potato and the soup is so creamy and has sour cream right inside. Best.soup.ever. Go and try it for yourself! I think you will agree!
