My husband never eats a pea when they are served at dinner! However, when he came home from work & smelled the crockpot soup, he had one cup and then another. I was amazed. This was great. I used 6 cups organic chicken broth + 1 cup water.. will omit the water next time to be a little thicker :) - 8/11/12
O.M.G. This was so amazing! I added one medium diced sweet red onion and omitted black pepper. Perfect. Will definitely be making this again and again. Delicious and so very easy. Thanks for sharing your recipe! - 5/12/10

Using the slow cooker on low will work perfectly! I have left it on low all day - love having dinner ready to come home to!
I was skeptical about the turkey bacon but was pleasantly suprised. My husband and I LOVE this soup! It's so incredibly easy to throw together before I go to work, and I've left it on low for up to 12 hours without problems. It seems a bit runny the night it's made so we wait to eat it reheated. - 11/14/10
