Cheesy Smoked Sausage Soup

Nothing tastes better on a cold evening than a big, steaming bowl of delicious soup. An this Cheesy Smoked Sausage Soup is so easy to make, which is my kind of recipe. I just diced all the veggies up and dumped them in my crockpot.

Dice up your smoked sausage (I used turkey cheddar, but you can use whatever you like), onion, carrots, potato and red peppers and place them in your slow cooker.

Then pour in the half & half, chicken broth and seasonings.

Set your slow cooker on low for 5-6 hours, or high for 3-4. Cook until potatoes are tender.

When potatoes are tender, turn off the heat, and add in the shredded cheese. Stir until melted and creamy.

Top it with just a bit more shredded cheese, and it's time to eat!

A little crusty bread served on the side, along with a dark fall beer, and you've got the perfect meal for the season.
