I made this soup, multiplied by three, to serve to family I had staying last week over the holiday.

It was the night before Thanksgiving and that morning I knew I needed something quick and easy to serve everyone because I was starting the Thanksgiving cooking that day.


I’m happy to say everyone loved it, of course myself included!

This slow cooker soup such an incredibly hearty, feel good soup.

If you opt to leave out the cheese, sour cream and chips you’d also have one amazingly healthy dinner (but doesn’t that just sound crazy to leave out all the good stuff?).
