Fast, Easy, Lo-Cal and Delicious Potato Soup

1 30 oz bag of Ore-Ida hash browns
3 14 oz cans chicken broth
1 14 oz can cream of chicken soup
7 strips of bacon, fried/cooked
1 8 oz package of cream cheese (full fat!)

Add bag of hashbrowns to crock pot.  Pour broth over to get the frozen chunks broken up.  Add the cream soup.  Mix.  Put on low for 7 hours.

After seven hours, add the cheese and stir until it melts (do not use fat free cream cheese - it won't melt).  Chop the cooked bacon and add.  Let it sit another hour.

I really want to give credit where credit is due but I have no idea where this recipe originated, I just know that I found it on Pinterest and then promptly lost it.  It doesn't even look like it's pinned anymore.  :-(  Whoever thought this up, well done and thank you!!!
