Slow Cooker Corn Chowder

Slow Cooker Corn Chowder

If you are a fan of vegetables and like thickened soups, then I have a great recipe for you. This corn chowder is chock full of beautiful red potatoes, sweet pepper, and two types of corn (creamed and kernels). Freshly crisped bacon and a hint of brown sugar compliment each other with their sweet and salty notes. The base is an even mixture of creamy whole milk and tasty chicken broth. Put all of the elements together, and you have a wonderful stew for a cold winter day.
