I thought this soup was good, although after 5 hours on high in my crockpot, my potatoes still seemed hard. I moved everything to the stove, but lost patience after about 30 minutes as it was past our dinner time. I put 3/4 of it into my blendtech, then put the blended mixture back into the pot. It resulted in a thick soup with some chunks of potato. I should also mention that i used bacon instead of ham, and also found it necessary to increase the amount of chicken broth. I used 1/2 of my 8oz package of cream cheese because it was unclear to me what '1/2 (8 oz.) package cream cheese' is. Seriously, do you want half of a 16 oz pkg resulting in 8 oz? Or do you want 1/2 of an 8 oz pkg? Regardless, it was good with just 4oz. I served this soup with a yummy garlic flavored bread. When I make this again, I will give it much more time to cook and perhaps use cheddar cheese or sour cream instead of cream cheese.
