Slow Cooker Summer Corn Chowder
Write a review
  1. 4 c. vegetable stock
  2. 2 c. corn (fresh or frozen)
  3. 2 c. potatoes, peeled and cubed
  4. 2 large carrots, peeled and diced
  5. 2 stalks celery, diced
  6. 1 red onion, diced
  7. 1 t. salt
  8. 1 t. dried thyme
  9. 1 c. sour cream
  10. 8 slices bacon
  11. 3 – 4 small zucchini, halved and sliced
  12. 3 tomatoes, diced
  13. 1/2 c. fresh basil, chopped
  1. Set your slow cooker on low and add the vegetable stock, corn, potatoes, carrot, celery, onion, salt and thyme. Cook on low setting for 7 – 8 hours. Once cooked, stir in the sour cream and blend the soup with an immersion blender. No need to turn off the slow cooker or remove the soup, just blend it right in the pot, with the immersion blender.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Chop the bacon and cook until crisp. Drain on paper towels. Pour off all but 1 tablespoon of bacon fat from the pan. Return the pan to medium heat and add the zucchini. Cook, stirring occasionally for 7 – 8 minutes, until beginning to soften. Stir the zucchini into the soup in the slow cooker.
  3. Serve the soup topped with fresh chopped tomato, basil and bacon.

    Getting a new phone is always so exciting!! So much of blogging can be done on those iPhones on the go. Don’t forget to get the wordpress app lol!! I love how this soup is made in the crockpot!

    • I’m really glad you mentioned that Zainab because I wouldn’t even have thought of it! My old phones just didn’t do much, so I’m excited to see what all I CAN do with the blog on the iPhone!
