Rich, creamy and delicious without a lick of cream, this spicy seafood chowder is spicy and satisfying.
Ingredients
  • 1 cup chopped onions
  • ½ cup chopped celery
  • ½ cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 16 ounces frozen sweet white corn
  • 4 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 2 teaspoons cajun seasoning (or to taste)
  • 1 can (12 ounces) fat free evaporated milk
  • ½ cup instant potato flakes
  • 2 cups small cooked shrimp
  • 6 ounces white fish fillets (I used Alaskan pollock)
Instructions
  1. Ideal Slow Cooker Size: 4 Quart
  2. In the slow cooker combine the onions, celery, bell pepper, corn, chicken broth and cajun seasoning. Cover and cook on LOW until the vegetables are tender, 4 to 6 hours.
  3. With an immersion blender, puree to desired consistency. (I like it with still some chunkiness.)
  4. Stir in the milk, instant potato flakes, shrimp and fish.
  5. Cover and cook on low until the fish is done and soup is heated through, another 30 minutes.
  6. Taste and add salt and pepper to taste
