Slow Cooker Corn Chowder {with Bacon + Potatoes}

Wintertime means Soup time.
We haven't had much of a winter this year here in California.
It has been in the high 60's & 70's since Christmas and we are in a drought.
But, yesterday it rained!
And, it is going to rain for the next few days, so I made a big batch of this soup.
I love it & I think you will too!
Here is what you need:
  •  1 bag of frozen corn
  •  1 can of creamed corn
  • 1-2 carrots
  • 1-2 celery stalks
  • 1 jalepeno
  • 1 red pepper
  • 3 red potatoes
  • 1/2 diced onion 
  • 3 cups milk (I use non fat or low fat)
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • Hormel Real Bacon Pieces
This soup is super simple to make because all you do is dice up your veggies & then put almost all the ingredients in your Slow Cooker!
Dice all your Red Pepper:
 Dump all that in your crock pot:
All those veggies are so pretty!
Then, I dump in my bag of frozen corn and can of cream corn
Add your 3 cups of milk along with Salt & Pepper to taste.
Then, stir it all together.
Cook in your crock pot on low for 5-6 hours or on high for 3-4 hours.
Right before you are about to serve it, turn off your crock pot, remove the lid and stir in 2 cups of Cheddar Cheese (you don't want the cheese to boil/overcook, that is why I put it in at the end.) Save a some extra cheese for you to use when you garnish each bowl of soup.

When you are ready to serve, sprinkle on some cheese on top & then add a good heaping of Hormel Real Bacon Pieces.
 Seriously. SO good. 
(Sometimes I even add additional bacon pieces to the crock pot about 30 min before I am serving the soup. It adds a really nice flavor to this soup!)
This is definitely a healthier & lighter Corn Chowder soup.
Delicious & Easy to Make!

SO, SO, SO good!


See you back here tomorrow for Pin-Spired!

  1. Looks wonderful. We have a very busy week coming up and I will need to use the crockpot most nights so this will be on our menu :)

  2. I'm having a girls cookie baking day in a few weeks and this sounds like the perfect easy lunch!

  3. That looks so yummy! My favorite kind of soup is a corn and potato chowder!

  4. This looks delicious and relatively healthy for a chowder. I will totally have to give this a try. Thanks!!!
