Peel and rinse away the dirt from the potatoes, then cut into medium sized chunks.
Add the potatoes to a 4 quart or larger slow cooker, then add in the chicken broth, garlic, onion, parsley, Ranch seasoning, basil, garlic salt, salt, Seasoned Salt, and ground black pepper.
Stir the seasonings into the broth and potatoes in the slow cooker, then place the lid on the slow cooker and cook on high 6 hours or low 8 hours.
Once cooked, remove the lid, turn the slow cooker off, and allow the potatoes to cool for about 10 minutes.
Use a potato masher to mash the potatoes into tiny pieces, then add in all remaining ingredients.
Stir until the butter is melted and all of the ingredients are well combined and smooth.
Top with shredded cheese and any other condiments you desire, and enjoy!
This soup pairs beautifully with thick slices of buttered and toasted Sourdough bread as well as a light Spinach or House salad.
