Slow Cooker Corn Chowder
June 26, 2013 12 Comments
This is the kind of recipe that makes me happy.
Why? It is high in vitamins B6, B12, and C. It is low in saturated fat and my entire family will eat it. And:
1. I can store almost all of the ingredients in my pantry so I am always prepared to make it.
2. It cooks in the slow cooker.
I love my slow cooker because I “set and forget”. I love the forgetting part – it comes quite naturally to me.
I used cream of corn, which is the first time in a while that I have had it. It is simply corn, water, and sugar. It gives the soup a nice sweet flavor, which is appealing to my children.
My kids like it with grated cheddar cheese and oyster crackers. You can use any milk you have around the house (low fat, almond, etc.).
You could make this without the milk. One of the nice things about this cream soup is that most of the creaminess in the chowder happens because the potatoes dissolve. So instead of “cow” cream, you get “potato” cream.
Do you like chowders? How do you make them?

Do you have any relatives who say that they cook and then they just open cans? Yep, this recipe was inspired by a “Can Chef”....
You see that leaf of basil up there? I wish that was ME! Why? Because it is 100F, and that soup is COLD....
