Another wonderful thing about Fall is the craving for comfort foods. There’s nothing like a warm, home cooked meal or a good, simple crock pot recipe! Soups are a favorite around here, so I decided I would make something hearty, delicious, and painless. After a little research and a trip to the grocery store, sprucing up an old favorite was the choice – and this bacon and corn chowder soup was born.

I have been working with  Cans Get You Cooking as a Canbassador to share canned food recipes and ideas to make easy, nutritious meals. Cooking with canned foods saves time and money, and provides some of the essential nutrients your family needs. Also, my slow cooker is one of my best friends in the kitchen, the convenience of ‘set it and forget it’ works wonders for my busy life!

Bacon Corn Chowder soup ingredients in the slow cooker crock pot

Take all ingredients, except for the heavy cream, butter and garnish, and throw in the slow cooker. The chicken broth should be enough to cover all of the other ingredients. If not, add a little more until everything is submerged.

*NOTE: Be sure to set aside a few bacon crumbles if you want to use some as garnish.

Set it, and FORGET IT! Cook on low for 8 hours. Go ahead, get some sleep! When it’s done, take half of the soup mixture and pulse in a blender. Put it back into the slow cooker, add the butter and heavy cream, and mix thoroughly. Cook on the low setting for 1 more hour. That’s it!

  • I just started making soup and this seems like a really easy way to do it. And it does look delicious. I think I’m going to add a few more veggies and make this for my dad. He will love it. Thanks!

  • Looked to good to pass up and I had some heavy cream in the fridge that needed to be liberated from its container. We’ll see what the family thinks tonight. BTW, I am adding some left over turkey at the end… just to use up some leftovers and to add a bit of protein. Thanks.

  • This looks yummy. I have a recipe that I would love sharing on your blog using the cans get cooking campaign. Let me know if you are interested.
