Baked Potato Soup

We usually eat pretty healthy around our house. I cook almost all of our meals, so I can control what my family eats. But we've all been sick for the last week so...there hasn't been much cooking going on. Luckily my little family has survived thanks to cold cereal, fruit, yogurt, and a few meals from family & friends. Last night we had a Christmas party that we couldn't go to, and my sweet neighbor dropped off some leftovers from the party. A huge plate of ham & baked potatoes. So I took that, plus a few things from the pantry and made an easy crock pot soup. Not the healthiest, but quick and easy and good on a sore throat!

6 baked potatoes, peeled & diced
1 onion, diced
1/2 t. pepper
1/2 t. garlic powder
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 can creamy potato soup
1 qt. chicken broth
1 c. diced ham

1. Combine all ingredients, except ham, in a crock pot and cook on high for 5-6 hours.
2. 30 minutes before it's done, take a potato masher & smash some of the potatoes in the pot. This will make the soup thicker. Add you ham and let it heat through.
3. Serve with a sprinkle of cheese on top & some crusty bread.
