"We do soup suppers often at our church and I am always looking for something new. This is not only rich and wonderful tasting, but it is also easy to throw into the crock pot. I've taken it 3 times and people rave about it every time and ask for the recipe. Thank you for this great recipe. Taste of Home, I rely on you and you never disappoint! The first time I made it, the cream cheese didn't melt well, so I just blend a bit of the soup into the softened cheese and then add it."
