This turned out great! I did put in on high for a few hours because it just didn't seem like it was getting thick. But in the end it was excellent. I made this as a last minute Easter dinner with roasted asparagus and a fruit salad for dessert. We just finished the leftovers and they were even better! Highly recommend this recipe.

This was more of a breakfast. And was very salty.

This tasted very good! As written, the recipe basically makes cheesy ham mashed potatoes. The ham I had was pre sliced so I just chopped it up, next time I want to use cubed ham. I used a bag of frozen chopped potatoes (cheesy bacon flavor), and they kind of mashed themselves in the slow cooker. If you don't want the potatoes to be creamy then cook them separately then add to the ham mixture at the end. This would be a great side dish for Thanksgiving too.

We thought this was really good and will probably make this again. I ended up having to use raw potatoes cubed, fresh green pepper and onion, and pre-sliced ham steaks which I cut into pieces. The potatoes held their form so it didn't turn out like mashed potatoes but more like potato soup-ish. I thought it turned out pretty good. My companion said different ham next time which would have been more appropriate to the recipe. Super easy and super good!

Surprisingly good and easy to make. Delicious for leftovers. I was surprised to find in the supermarket bags of chopped potatoes with peppers and onions already part of the mix...I was originally confused by the first ingredient thinking I had to add these separately. Neat! For us, 3lbs of ham was too much and it needed to be cubed ahead of time. Next time we will use about 2lbs of ham and will try adding cooked, chopped bacon for a smokey kick.

It came out much soupier than the picture. I even added a cup of frozen veggies (corn, peas, carrots). Next time I'm going to add more veggies and a teaspoon of flour to thicken it up.

I used Simply Potatoes Southwestern style and they were really good. I doubled the recipe and brought to a work potluck and none were leftover. I liked the kick from the potatoes, but next time I think I'd use the regular kind.

This was good. I only had "normal" potatoes on hand which I cubed and that turned out great. The one star off is for the directions, I found it very confusing. For example where do the onions and peppers come from? And I didn't notice there were two types of cheeses. Overall it was good, and we will be making it again.
