Crock Pot Potato Soup

My friend Pam made this soup once when we were at their house. I had never tried making potato soup in the Crock Pot before, but this was really yummy! Below is the recipe with the adjustments that I made to it.

Crock Pot Potato Soup
6 c. water
1 c. ham*
5 c. potatoes - finely diced - We leave the skins on.
8 oz. cream cheese, cubed - We use reduced fat.
half an onion, chopped - I use frozen.
1 tsp. garlic - I use Tastefully Simple's Garlic Garlic.
1 c. carrots, diced
1 c. celery, thinly sliced
1/2 tsp. dill
2 tsp. chicken bouillon

Combine all in Crock Pot, and cook on low for 8 hours or on high for 4 hours.

*Since my husband isn't supposed to be eating regular ham, we get a 1/2 pound slice of Smithfield Lean Generation's deli ham. It's incredibly lean, and it works great in recipes. Our deli will slice it in one 1/2 pound slice for us. That's also much less expensive than buying a regular ham.
