Slow Cooker Bacon Cheeseburger Soup



I love Fall. It has to be my favorite season. It has finally gotten cool here in chicagoland, actually today is just downright cold. I'm loving it...for now anyway! Cooler weather always puts me in the mood for a nice bowl of soup. I'm obsessed with making soups and chili in my crock pot so of course this soup was made in the slow cooker. It was an instant hit with the hubby and I can't wait to make it again!
