Blend/mash the potatoes using an immersion blender, or the back of a fork to desired consistency. *The potatoes should thicken the soup naturally once mashed, however if you desire a thicker soup, create a slurry with 2 tbsp gluten free flour and 1/2 cup liquid(broth or milk). Stir into the slow cooker, and cook an additional 15 minutes covered on the high setting.
  6. Top with crumbled bacon and chives.
