6 medium potatoes, peeled and diced
Crockpot Directions: Combine everything except last 4 ingredients in crockpot. Cook on low 7-9 hours or on high 3-4 hours. Stir in the can of evaporated milk the last 45 minutes. Serve hot topped with bacon, cheddar, and chives.
Stovetop Directions: In a large sauce pan on medium heat, saute onion in a tablespoon of oil until soft (about 7-8 minutes). Add the potatoes, leeks, carrots, celery, chicken broth, parsley, garlic salt, and butter and simmer together for about 30 minutes.
Allow to cool for about 5 minutes, then in a blender puree about 1/3 of the soup or until desired texture has been reached.
Reheat. Serve hot topped with bacon, cheddar, and chives.
