I doubled this recipe. After adding the initial two cups of stock, it wasn't nearly enough to cover the potatoes. I ended up dumping the whole 32 ounce carton in. I did throw in a teaspoon each of garlic and onion powders, a healthy amount of fresh chives and some Frank's hot sauce. I did use fat free evaporated milk (I've had some disasters using refrigerated milk in the crockpot--I now use canned milk) and reduced fat cream cheese. This turned out very well and smells AMAZING. The cream cheese added a nice creamy flavor without going overboard. Next time, I think I'll cut the milk back by half to get a thicker soup.

Potatoes didn't cook. I had to take them out & cook them I on the stove, then put them back in the crock pot. They were diced small.

Very good, nutritional soup. It was a good meal for a cold day. I'll be making it again very soon.

Delicious, easy and you can add other vegetables like broccoli and mushrooms to the recipe.

Absolutely delicious! I made mine on the stove and it was ready in less than an hour. Instead of ham I used bacon. I used whole milk and it was thick and creamy. Will make again for sure!

This is the best potato soup ever. I added more potatoes and extra onion but the overall look and taste of this soup is wonderful. I served it with fresh biscuits. A hearty meal

This recipe is the reason I love this site. The ingredient list cleared out my fridge and provided a wonderful dinner. My wife likes spicy foods so I topped this savory soup with some fresh sliced jalapenos to add a kick.
