This was easy and pretty good. I'll use cream of chicken soup next time instead of cream of celery though because the celery flavor was stronger than we like. It was best topped with crumbled bacon and croutons.
After eating a bowl of this soup, I used an immersion blender to grind up some of potatoes and veggies. the result was just what we were looking for. I will be making this again.
My soup had great flavor but it was more like chunky mashed potatoes. Mine was not as soupy as the other reviewers stated theirs were.
The soup was ok, but I was hoping for a thicker & creamier base (more like chowder). It was very easy to make and can be done ahead of time. I made mine the night before, put it in the refrigerator, and then set it to cook in the morning. Dinner was done when I got home! Not sure if I'd make it again, though.
I was thrilled to see this was a crock-pot recipe but was disappointed that mine was not more of a chowder thickness. I was so wanting it to be a thicker soup and mine just wasn't. Its taste was okay, but I will lean more towards a baked potato soup over this one.

This was just alright. There are much better cheddar potato soup recipes on here than this one.
Add some grated carrots for flavor, texture, and color. Soup tastes even better the next day.
Bacon adds a wonderful smoky touch. This soup is very creamy and we used skim milk and fat free half and half. We had to substitute the cream of celery for cream of chicken but the switch worked well.
