My mom’s recipe for Crock Pot Corn Chowder – you can’t go wrong when it’s mom’s recipe!

Crock Pot Corn Chowder on www.tasteandtellblog.com

Growing up, I remember having the same probably 10-15 meals over and over.  I think we were on a 2 week rotation.  I don’t think I often complained, because I really love my mom’s cooking.  But I think she just cooked to survive – to keep our bellies full.  These days, I know she plays around a lot more in the kitchen.  But it still throws me off to find a recipe that she has written down that I haven’t tried.  But since I love my mom’s cooking, I always know if it has her name by it – I’m going to love it!!

I was looking through a family cookbook while menu planning, and I saw this recipe for this corn chowder.  It’s one of those recipes from my mom that I don’t remember ever trying.  And it is a slow cooker recipe, and we know I’m always on the lookout for a good slow cooker recipe!  So I put it down.  Later that week, before I made the recipe, I had to call my mom with a question about the recipe, and she raved at how much she likes this chowder.  Then I really knew I was excited to try it out!

It doesn’t get much easier than this recipe.  And it really is perfect.  It’s a little different in that you don’t cook it with all of the liquid the whole time, so the potatoes that are along the edge of the slow cooker get nice and brown, which I thought really added a ton of flavor.  You will want to make sure it doesn’t cook too long, though, because of the lack of liquid.  Another thing I really love about this recipe is that it is really made from things I always have on hand.  And while I used frozen corn, (it is winter in Utah, after all!), this would be a great way to highlight the fresh corn of summer.  In fact, it gave me a much needed look into summer!

    I've always loved corn chowder. I think I'll be making this later this week. It looks wonderful and I too love a slow cooker recipe.

  2. Rick and Nikki says:

    Looks delicious! You think I can use buttermilk instead of real milk?? Or would that be bad? Trying to get rid of the few cups I have left..

  3. Karly says:

    Yum! I love corn chowder, but I've never tried making it in a crock pot!

  4. Joanne says:

    My mom cooked approximately two meals the entire time that I was growing up. So I would definitely be shocked if I ever unearthed some hidden recipe trove of hers. this chowder looks delicious and I can certainly see why it's a favorite!

  5. Rachel says:

    Looks delicious!! My mom pretty much had the same 5-6 dishes that she would make, but the funny thing was that those would change every few years. I can remember that my mom would cook fish almost every night for about a year and a half, but then mysteriously she switched to chicken every night for the next two. My dad (after 20+ years) is begging for some variation!

    Mmmhhh, so conforting and scrumptious!

    I'm picky when it comes to crock pot meals, but this one looks delish. I'll give it a try. Hang in there on the 'waiting' game. Been there, done that–6 times!

  8. Tammy says:

    sounds wonderful! I could never make the same meals over and again, I do have family favorites that I always resort back to, but I love new recipes and exploring. My family never knows what they will get each night! Of course that means I have an almost embaressing amount of recipes and it's always hard to find one that I want to make again because it's lost in the endless collection of recipes I've accumulated!

    i love that you can choose what kind of liquid to add. this looks sweet, smoky and creamy, so yummy!

    Oh! I have been looking for a good Corn Chowder recipe. I think it is probably my favorite soup! I will have to try this!

  11. Abby says:

    We've been eating a lot of boiled corn on the cob that I froze last summer. I'm going to remember this for next fall!

  12. Charissa says:

    It looks divinely delicious! I think if I were to make this I'd replace the normal bacon with turkey bacon. Thanks so much for sharing!

  14. I was looking for a crockpot corn chowder and love that yours comes up 3rd on google! :) this sounds so good! I think I have almost everything on hand!

    This is so similar to my mom’s recipe that she makes in our well-seasoned and well loved cast iron skillet, but adapted for a crock pot! I prefer sautee-ing the onions in the bacon fat along with some garlic and jalapeno before adding to the crock pot, and skip the Worcestershire and sugar altogether, the corn is sweet enough as is. Sometimes I do add some cumin or taco seasoning, my own twist on Mom’s recipe. This recipe conjures up so many great memories of cooking with Mom, thanks for sharing! PS It’s always better the second day!
