Every Thursday, my mother-in-law, three sisters-in-law, and I make the same slow cooker recipe for dinner. We call it Crock Pot Thursday (clever, no?) and take turns choosing the recipe. Since our family is flung far and wide, this is our way of sharing a meal once a week. As it is with recipes, we sometimes make small modifications based on tastes, time, and pantry contents, and we often discuss our individual results. It’s fun to have someone else choose my family’s meal for a night, and now you can play, too! I’ll be sharing the previous week’s recipe every Thursday, and giving tips based on our feedback.
Last week we made a family favorite. This recipe is so good my five-year-old asked to have leftovers for breakfast. It’s pretty much his favorite meal. This chowder is also great when I make it in my dutch oven (cuts the cook time way down, and I can cook the bacon in the same pot.)
I served it with green salad and crusty bread. Enjoy!
I used my 6.5-Quart Crock-Pot Programmable Touchscreen Slow Cooker to make this Crock Pot Corn Chowder.
Crock Pot Corn Chowder
- 4 medium potatoes, peeled and diced
- 1 can cream corn
- 1 can whole kernel corn
- 2 cups chicken broth
- 10 oz bacon, fried and chopped
- 1 small onion, diced
- ¼ cup butter
- 2 cups half and half
- Place potatoes, both cans of corn, chicken broth, bacon, and onions into the slow cooker.
- Cook on low for 7-8 hours.
- Mash the mixture to your desired consistency, and add the butter and half and half.
- Cook for an additional 30 minutes on high.

How exciting! Thank you, and congratulations on yours! Hmmm…10, 10, and 10? I better get to work!
I have to make this! Sounds yummy!
It is! I pinned your Chicken Adobo on Pinterest and hope to try it soon!
I looooove corn chowder and get sad every single fall when I think of making it and remember I can't buy creamed corn here. 🙁 I'll have to find a recipe for creamed corn and THEN I can make me a good corn chowder!
Don't let that slow you down! There are lots of recipes for creamed corn (corn, cream, sugar, butter, salt, pepper) that look pretty easy. Do it this week!
This recipe was great. I used ham instead of bacon and loved the way it turned out! A winter staple for sure.
It may be obvious to those who have made soup/chowder before, but I wasn’t sure if I should drain the can of whole kernel corn or not. I did. I’ll know in a few hours if that was the correct decision. LOL!
Whats the instructions for on the stovetop with a dutch oven? I’d like to have both options available.
I like the way the writer organized his ideas as well as the visual part.
