Slow Cooker Corn Chowder

This is a family favorite/standard for me. Simple soup I can make in the slow cooker and finish up right before dinner with great flavor. The coriander really gives it something I think.

I forgot to take a picture, probably because I was so hungry and its a standard recipe to cook. Ooops!

Easy Corn Chowder

2 cans (14 ½ ounces each) chicken or veggie broth or equivalent

1 bag (16 ounces) frozen corn kernels

3 small potatoes, peeled and cut into ½-inch pieces

1 red bell pepper, diced

1 medium onion, diced

1 rib celery, chopped

½ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon black pepper

¼ teaspoon ground coriander

½ cup heavy cream (optional)

Bacon or bacon bits for topping (optional)

1. Place broth, corn, potatoes, bell pepper, onion, celery, salt, black pepper and coriander into slow cooker. Cover; cook on LOW 7 to 8 hours.

2. Partially mash soup mixture with potato masher to thicken. (Or use immersion blender in parts). Stir in cream if desired, cook on HIGH, uncovered, until hot. Adjust seasonings, if desired, Garnish with bacon if desired
