Peel & cut some potatoes boil them until tender add a can of evaporated milk, chop a onion and cook until heated thru add salt & pepper to taste. There you go. You can add cheese or bacon bits too if you want. I usually add them to my own bowl. LOL Hope i helped you some.

Ingredients:

  • 8 to 10 slices bacon, diced, about 8 ounces
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup diced celery
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 1 bunch green onions, about 8 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups half-and-half
  • 4 large baking potatoes, baked, peeled, and diced
  • 1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 8 ounces sour cream
  • 8 ounces shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • Sliced green onion for garnish, optional

Preparation:

In a Dutch oven or large kettle over medium heat, cook the bacon until crisp. Remove bacon to paper towels to drain and pour the bacon drippings into a cup. Put 2 tablespoons of bacon drippings back into the pan along with the butter, chopped onion, and celery. Cook, stirring, until vegetables are tender. Stir in the sliced green onion and flour until blended. Stir in chicken broth; cover and continue cooking, stirring frequently, until the mixture is thickened and vegetables are very tender. Stir in half-and-half, diced potatoes, salt, pepper, and cheese. Continue cooking until cheese is melted. Blend about half of the soup in batches until smooth. Add the blended soup back to the pot and add sour cream. Cook, stirring constantly, until soup is hot. Serve the soup garnished with bacon and extra sliced green onion, if desired.

I dont have an exact recipe for mine but everyone loves mine.

However many potatoes you need to fill a crockpot half way 

some cut up carrotts

some cut up celery

butter

flour

velveeta

milk

dill

garlic powder

onion powder

celery salt

pepper

and salt to taste

cut and peel potatoes in bite size pieces, put in crockpot. cut up carrotts and celery and put in crockpot. Then fill up the crockpot with milk and set crockpot to low setting. Then in a small skillet put in a couple teaspoons of butter and add flour to make a roux on med heat. Add to the crockpot and mix. You may have to do this several times during the time it takes to cook potatoes in order to get desired consistancy. Then add your seasonings to how you like and let cook for 5-7 hours. When potatoes are tender cut upp however much velveeta you like and add to the soup. When it is melted the soup is ready

sorry dont have measurments...I always just do it to whatever looks good.
