Healthified Baked Potato Soup in the Crockpot

I love Baked Potato Soup :)  The misconception is that it is bad for you and you have to put cream or butter in it to make it taste good.  Not anymore!

Put about 8-10 medium-large red potatoes in the crockpot. 

Cover with broth (I guestimate about 4-5 cups water + chicken boullion to equate the water).

Crock on low for 5-6 hours or keep warm all day.

When you are about 1/2 hour away from chowtime, Take a potato masher or, my favorite, Pampered Chef Mix 'N Chop and breakup/mash the potatoes into a chunky slop.

Add 1-2 pouches of instant mashed potatoes to thicken.
Add a large scoop (about 1 cup) of YoChee, or plain Greek yogurt to cream it up.
Add 2-3 cups lowfat milk to get the consistency you want.
I like to add garlic powder, but thats entirely up to you.

Garnish with bacon bits, sliced green onions, cheddar cheese, and more YoChee (or sour cream).

Salt & Pepper to taste.
