Ingredients
  

  • lbs golden potatoes (about 5 medium potatoes diced into ½" - ¾" pieces)
  • cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 2 large carrots (peeled and diced)
  • 1 rib celery (diced)
  • 1 medium onion (diced)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • ½ tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic (minced)
  • 6 slices thick cut bacon
  • ¼ cup butter
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup milk
  • cups heavy cream
  • cups cheddar cheese (grated and divided into 2 cups and ½ cup)
  • 2 green onions (sliced)

Instructions
 

  • Wash potatoes, then cube them into ½" - ¾" chunks and add them to a 6 quart Crockpot. Peel carrots, then dice the carrots, onions and celery and place them in the Crockpot.
  • Add chili powder, salt, ground black pepper, garlic, parsley, thyme and chicken broth. Stir with a large spoon until well mixed.
  • Place the lid on and cook on low for6-8 hours, or high for 3-4 hours.
  • About 30 minutes before soup is done cooking. Place 6 pieces of bacon on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until it has reached your desired crispiness. Remove from oven and let cool, then chop to desired size and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl melt butter, then mix in flour until butter is completely absorbed. Then slowly whisk in the heavy cream and milk and mix until there is no lumps. Then heat the roux in the microwave for 45 seconds and mix again.
  • Remove lid from the Crockpot and stir in the milk roux, then add in 2 cups of cheese. Then add in most of the bacon reserving some for garnish and mix until the cheese is full melted and incorporated into the soup.
  • When serving garnish with the remaining cheese, bacon and sliced green onions. Enjoy!
