(Weight Watchers Friendly Crock Pot Cooking Day 160)

This easy crock pot corn chowder is the kind of recipe that makes me very, very happy.

For several reasons…

It’s easy to make with the most basic of pantry ingredients.

It manages to be rich, creamy and delicious and good for you while being very low in fat.

And it reminds me of the corn chowder my mom made when I was growing up.

Actually, it is Mom’s recipe adapted for the slow cooker and tweaked just a little :-)

We enjoyed this easy crock pot corn chowder for supper last night, along with some crusty bread and a few chunks of the most delicious honey smoked salmon from Costco.

Simple, satisfying and delicious, it’s one of my favorite weeknight suppers.

I sometimes like to cook the onions in the microwave for 1 to 2 minutes to soften them before adding to the crock pot. I think they turn out sweeter that way.
