Tender potatoes with that famous comforting flavor and texture combined with a creamy cheese soup. This Crockpot Cheesy Potato Soup recipe was inspired by one of my other favorite soup recipes, Cheeseburger Soup.
The secret in these recipes is the basil. Basil truly takes the soup to the next level of amazingly delicious. I'm not sure why, but whenever I add basil to recipes people scarf it down and get addicted. It's amazing. It's the secret ingredient in my Homemade Chicken Pot Pie Casserole too! I've got a houseful of people addicted to all of these basil recipes, along with my extended family now as well! I should probably check on the addictiveness of basil, but in the meantime, it's fabulous in this Crockpot Cheesy Potato Soup.
