This Slow Cooker Potato Corn Chowder is one of the best easy crock pot recipes that is sure to warm you up on a cold day. It’s one of the best slow cooker recipes of all time.
Slow Cooker Potato and Corn Chowder is a favorite soup at my house. I love that with just a little prep work and combining the ingredients in the slow cooker I can walk away and not think it again until dinner time.
Hi! It’s Susanne from New South Charm back again this month sharing one of my favorite soup recipes. One thing I love the most about this chowder is that it’s made in the slow cooker. Of course everyone knows that slow cookers are a fantastic way make cooking dinner easier at the end of a busy day.
This Potato and Corn Chowder does take a little prep before it goes in the slow cooker but it’s nothing too labor intensive. To begin you will need to wash and dice the potatoes. Once they are ready just dump them into the slow cooker followed by a package of frozen corn and three tablespoons for flour. Toss to coat.
Next you will add the chicken stock. Be sure you are using stock and not broth. Broth is seasoned while stock is not. Using broth will change the flavor of the soup so be sure to use chicken stock.
After pouring then the chicken stock add thyme, oregano, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper, Stir to combine.
Cook on low for seven to eight hours or high for three to four hours. This will depend on your slow cooker and it’s settings. Each brand or size of cooker is slightly different.
Once the cooking it complete you will add a half cp of heavy cream. Stir the cream into the soup until it’s fully combined.
I like to add a little bacon to this soup but ti’s not necessary. Thinly sliced scallions are also great with this soup. Of course with any soup or chowder crackers are delicious.
