Cooking Sweet Potatoes in the Slow Cooker

What I love about cold weather soups is that they can be creamy (and cheesy) but you pack them full with vegetables! As I mentioned so many times before I’m in love with my slow cooker, so you’re going to love how easy this is!

First you’ll throw your cooked dice ham, corn, sweet potatoes, celery, red pepper, white beans and onion in the slow cooker.  And then add 5 cups of chicken broth.  By the way, this is such a great recipe to make with leftover ham, so make sure to bookmark it for the holidays!

If you don’t want to eat leftovers right away, that’s ok too.  Just throw this soup it in some freezer bags, and when you’re ready to use defrost in the refrigerator the night before.
