This is a recipe we used to always have on Halloween growing up at my grandmother's house with corn muffins. I have since adapted it to a crock pot, but my mom still does it on the stove.
Crock pot Corn Chowder
1-2 qt broth or more depending on the size cooker you use
1 onion, diced
1-2 lbs potatoes, diced(peeled if you like)
2 cans cream corn
2 cans corn, drained
1/2 lb bacon, cooked, drained, crumbled(although I have used a whole lb)
salt and pepper to taste
Place all ingredients in slow cooker, except milk and butter. Broth should come up over ingredients, may need more or less depending on the size of the crock pot you are using. Cook on low 8-10 hrs or until potatoes are cooked through. About 30-60 mins before serving add in milk, enough to fill slow cooker, butter, and bacon. Stir, once heated through. Serve with corn bread or muffins.
**You can easily adapt this to a vegetarian meal without the bacon and use veggie broth. This is not thick like a stew, but more soup like. You can also add more potatoes and corn depending on the size of your crock pot.
