This is the crockpot we love & use! It’s my best friend during the cold months at our cabin: Check it out here for under $30: 6 Quart Portable Crockpot

The best part of this recipe is that it uses red potatoes.

Of all the potato soups I’ve tried (and I love potato soup), the red potatoes add an extra tasty element. Combined with the other flavors of the soup, and topped with more bacon, cheese, and green onions – this is the ultimate loaded potato soup.

Fire up your crockpot, and here’s how to get started!
