WW Recipe of the Day: Easy Crock Pot Corn Chowder
This easy crock pot corn chowder is the kind of WW friendly 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 slow cooked 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 (affiliate link) for 1 to 2 minutes, to soften them before adding to the crock pot. I think they turn out sweeter that way.

Hi, Martha. I love your recipes and use many of them regularly.
One question- My only crock pot is a 6 quart. How would the size of the crock pot affect the cooking time?
Thanks so much!
Hi Sherri, When you use an Slow Cooker that is larger than the Ideal Suggested Size your recipe is likely to cook faster. I can't tell you by exactly how much. You'll just want to keep an eye on it. ~Martha
I made this for supper last night and it was delicious! It was even better today for lunch. I didn't peel the potatoes so it went together really fast and smelled wonderful as it cooked yesterday afternoon. The bacon bits put it over the top with flavor. So easy to make, I'm sure this will be a winter staple for me. I have a garlic/rosemary mix grinder that I added to my mug of chowder for lunch-yum! Thanks Martha for helping all of us on this weight loss journey.
