Cheesy Hash Brown Potato Soup

I love Potato Soups...There are actually several different recipes that I love and this is one of them. Easy, Delicious and you make it in a crock pot...grin...Enjoy...

Cheesy Hash Brown Potato Soup

1 (32 oz) bag thawed southern-style diced hash brown potatoes

1/2 cup chopped onion

1/2 cup diced celery

1 (32 oz) carton chicken broth

1 cup water

3 Tablespoons all-purpose flour

1 cup milk

2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese blend

1/4 cup real bacon pieces

Mix first 5 ingredients in crock pot. Cover and cook on LOW for 6 to 8 hours. Just before serving, mix flour into milk and stir into crock pot mixture. Increase heat to HIGH, cover and cook 20 to 30 minutes. You want mixture to thicken. Stir in cheese until melted. Spoon into bowls, salt & pepper (to taste) and garnish with bacon and green onions.

Enjoy! Happy Slow Cooking!
