Equipment

  • Large crockpot

Ingredients
  

  • 2 lbs Russet potatoes Skinned and diced
  • 1 cup Thinly Diced shallots
  • 1 cup Chopped carrots
  • 8 oz bacon
  • 8 cups Chicken broth
  • 3 tbsp rice flour or cornstarch
  • 2 cups Buttermilk
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp Garlic powder
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 1/4 tsp Dried dill
  • 1 1/4 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes 
  • 1 tsp minced fresh parsley
  • 1 cup Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan

Instructions
 

  • Fry the bacon in a large skillet on medium heat.
  • Once the bacon is fully cooked and crispy set them aside some paper towels to absorb the grease. 
  • Scoop 1 tbsp of the bacon grease in your crock pot and turn it on. 
  • Add the shallots and potatoes and put the lid on and cook on high for 1 hour. 
  • Combine all the dry seasonings and herbs and rice flour in a small mixing bowl and whisk until they’re thoroughly combined before sprinkling over the tops of the potatoes and mashing a little bit to incorporate the spices well
  • Pour in the buttermilk and chicken broth and stir a little bit before putting the lid back on and cooking on high for three hours. 
  • Stir the soup and add in the carrots and Monterey Jack cheese put the lid back on for another 20 minutes
  • Turn the crockpot off and leave off the lid and use a potato masher to mash the soup all the way up before allowing it to cool off for about 20 minutes.
  • If it still not blended very well use a sturdy whisk to whisk the soup thoroughly once it has cooled down enough to be safe to touch.
  • Crumble up the bacon and garnish the top of each bowl of soup with fresh Parmesan and crumbled bacon.
