Potato and Bacon Soup

We had bought a new crock pot and my husband was anxious to use it. So it got its debut with this creamy potato and bacon soup.

Potato and Bacon Soup

3 large potatoes (peeled and cubed)
1/2 lb. Bacon (crisp and crumbled)
1 Green pepper (diced)
1 onion (diced)
8 oz. sliced Mushrooms
1 - 47 oz. can Chicken Broth
1 - 26 oz. can Cream of Chicken soup
1 - 8 oz. package Cream Cheese
2 Tablespoons Basil
Salt and pepper to taste
Chives
Shredded Cheddar cheese

Fry bacon and set aside. Dice onion and green pepper and saute to sweating. cube cream cheese. Add all ingredients to slow cooker, set on high and let cook until potatoes get soft (about 6 hours) then turn to low and cook additional 2 hours. Sprinkle chopped chives and cheese on top of soup to give that restaurant look.
