Slow Cooker Creamy Corn Chowder

slow cooker recipes creamy corn chowder

Browsing slow cooker recipes?  Try this creamy corn chowder with some fresh and healthy ingredients: corn, potato, celery, bell pepper and white onion. This is a lighter version of those “classic comfort food” corn chowder recipes. I skipped the heavy cream cheese and replaced it with 2% milk (you can also use whole milk for richer texture).  Atop the soup is a healthier alternative, with all natural and nitrate free turkey bacon. Slow cooker recipes are so convenient, I just throw all of the ingredients into the pot and for the most part walk away.  The short preparation time gives so much more time to my day.

    We enjoy a good corn chowder but we like ours more creamier, less chucks of corn. Combine with a toss salad and some homemade bread all set.

    Another reason to love my slow cooker. Your corn chowder looks awesome! I would rather use regular bacon instead of turkey bacon though. I am sure it will still turn out delicious.
