This is my favorite time of year. The leaves are starting to turn beautiful hues of orange, auburn, and gold, the weather is just a little cooler, and the air is crisp. I love all of the seasons, but fall may be my favorite.
For my family, we love curling up together on the couch, watching movies and spending time together. I also love utilizing my crock-pot this time of year, so I can prepare our dinners in the morning, and come home to a warm, home-cooked meal without the work!
This week, I decided to prepare a hearty, wholesome crockpot potato soup with a little spin. I added some Hatch green chilies and corn kernals, making it a mix between a potato soup and a green chile corn chowder. The results? Amazing!
I used Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash browns in this recipe, since they are fresh, never frozen, and cut down on the peeling and shredding on busy mornings! I found them in the refrigerated dairy section at my grocery store, checked to make sure they were made with real ingredients, and grabbed them for my recipe!
