Slow Cooker Cheesy Potato Soup

I love coming home after a busy day to a great soup simmering away in the Slow Cooker.  This is a real simple and flavorful Potato Soup that we just love, a real stick to your ribs comfort soup.  We just love to cozy up for the evening with this awesome bowl of soup.
