You might be thinking that I am crazy for making soup in the middle of August but eh...who cares! I love a good pot of soup especially if it's made in the slow cooker. Such a time saver! The idea behind this soup comes from my Loaded BBQ Chicken and Potato Casserole. It's basically the same thing but in a soup. It was beyond good and a hit with the entire family!
