This recipe is so great! It's thick, creamy, and very filling. I am going to halve the recipe next time for just two people. I used the slow cooker for mine, with no problem... I even had it cooking on high for 3.5 hours without realizing it and thought I ruined it, but didn't thankfully. I don't know why/how other people had runny, watery soup but I had no problem. I didn't cook the onions beforehand, I just put them in the cooker raw. I also didn't put in the bacon either, I saved it to garnish when we were ready to eat (I used ready-to-eat bacon which you can heat up in the microwave for however many you need/want - so convenient). Also added shredded cheese as a garnish too. I put a couple pinches of crushed red pepper flakes and a garlic clove minced to add more zing and flavor. I used lowfat evaporated milk and regular half and half. I also used reduced sodium chicken broth as well. The grocery store didn't have large potatoes unbagged... so I used 8 red-skinned, medium-sized potatoes instead. I also mashed half the potatoes as well before I added the creamy mixture. Mm Mm Mm. Thank you for sharing! It was perfect for a cool, fall day!
