(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.
- 1 small onion (1/2 cup) diced
- 2 cups diced raw potatoes
- 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 cup water
- 2 cans (about 15 ounces each) cream style corn
- ¼ cup real bacon bits (optional)
- 1 can (12 ounces) evaporated fat free milk
- Ideal Slow Cooker Size: 3 to 4-Quart
- Grease the inside of the slow cooker.
- Combine all the ingredients except the evaporated milk in the slow cooker. Cover and cook on LOW for 4 to 6 hours, or until the potatoes and onions are tender.
- Add the milk and stir well to combine. Cover and cook on HIGH for 1 hour, and then turn to WARM until ready to serve.
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.
