Spicy Cream Cheese Potato Soup




I know fall is still two months away but the weather around here has been "fall like" the past couple of days. I figure why not make some soup? Yes, I'm fully aware that it's the end of July! I've seen lots of recipes floating around for cream cheese potato soup. I've never made a potato soup that uses cream cheese so I had to try it. I made mine in my crock pot and oh my goodness, was it good!

  4. I'm surprised it's so low cal! It sounds so decadent. I am definitely making this come fall. I'd be a rebel and make it now, but I'm in Florida and it would probably make me sweat haha.
