    I doubled the corn all around on this one, and it was amazing. My husband had 3 helpings, and he said he didn’t like corn chowder when it was cooking. Lol

    Cooking this for the first time over night for dinner tomorrow night. I only used 6 yellow potatoes and that seemed to be enough. Can’t wait to try it! :)

  8. Molly

    This chowder is absolutely delicious! When my kids come home from school and see the crock-pot out, they race to the counter to see if this chowder is inside it! They even asked for it for their special birthday dinner – instead of going out!

    Made this tonight using russet potatoes, onions and added 2 cloves of garlic and a few mushrooms all finely chopped. My boys loved it. Didn’t have any ham, but it still was fantastic!

    Delish! We had to go to dance and then come home to eat, so i mashed and added the cream and butter and kept on low for two hours instead of high for an hour. Will definitely be a regular meal for us

    I found this recipe on Pinterest and it turned out absolutely delicious! My family is vegetarian so I substituted the chicken broth for vegetable broth and used meatless ham. Thank you for the recipe..definitely saving this one!

  23. Lindsey

    Made this tonight and my family LOVED it! Instead of ham, I added a drained can of rotel and it came out great!

    The above recipe calls for 6 to 8 potatoes. It doesn’t specify what kind so I went with russet. However I only used five as that made the crock pot really full as is. I just came across the video and in it they said they used 4 potatoes…so mine is taking forever to cook :( it smells good tho :)

    This was fabulous! I found a bag of diced ham at Wal-Mart and it was perfect for this! Thanks for correcting the # of potatoes b/c I shared this on fb today! :) This really was so perfect for a cool fall night. Good idea on the frozen hashbrowns Lynda! I loved having my 4 year old daughter help me clean the potatoes though– ha!
    Thanks for a great recipe!

    Thanks Lee..it should be 6-8. Got it fixed :)

    And thanks for all the tips Lynda and sharing how you tweaked the recipe. We love hearing how y’all make these recipes to your own taste!

    Happy Crockin’, y’all!

    I have made a similar recipe before and it is DELICIOUS! It’s even easier if you “cheat” and use frozen diced hashbrown potatoes. Voila! No peeling and chopping. Big time and energy saver. Also, more “almost homemade” cheats would be to use frozen chopped onions (for those of us who hate chopping onions) and even canned ham (in the canned meats/ tuna section of the grocery store). And to lighten up the calories, regular or evaporated milk would work, although the chowder wouldn’t be quite as creamy. YUM!! :-)

    Hi, Girls. I’ve got this in the crock pot for tomorrow but I just noticed that your recipe on here says 4–6 potatoes but in the cookbook, it says 6-8 potatoes…

  31. Jelena

    Awesome! Thanks.

    Jelena

  32. Crockin Girls

    Crockin Girls

    The cans are just regular sized cans. Something like 15 oz. Also, we used russet potatoes, medium sized.

  33. Jelena

    Quick question: How big are your cans of corn (both cream and kernel) in terms of ounces? Also, what kind of potato do you recommend using?

    Thanks!

    Jelena

  34. Crockin Girls

    Crockin Girls

    Sure…HIGH for about 4 hours!

  35. Nicole

    Could you cook this one high?

  36. Crockin Girls

    Crockin Girls

    This would be a great meal exchange recipe. You can make this a freezer meal and assemble everything in a zip-lock bag and put it in the freezer. That way you just pull it out and put in the slow cooker when you are ready.

  37. Meri Anne

    Mmmm this sounds sooo yummy! I participate in a meal exchange and I’m wondering how well this might freeze? Would I need to cook it in the crock, then freeze or could I assemble, freeze & then give to allow them to cook on their own? The potatoes are what I’m not sure about…

    This is really yummy! I used red potatoes that don’t need to be peeled and added a few roasted red bell peppers for an extra pop of flavor and color!

    Awe…I hope you get to feeling better, Jasmine. I hope the corn chowder helped to feed your sick body :(

    Amanda, just use a potato masher or fork to mash the ingredients. You don’t want the potatoes to be whole for this recipe. We actually made a video for this recipe, so you can crock your corn with us. Sorry I didn’t see your message sooner. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aSFU7UAZMXM

  41. Jasmine

    I’ve been sick all week and saw this recipe on my aunt’s Facebook after she had Pinned it. I knew this would make me feel better so I decided to make it today but made it on the ‘High’ temp. and reduced cook time to 4 hours (also omitted the ham). After 4 hours I added the butter and cream…now I’m patiently waiting till 8 o’clock to enjoy some! I’m going to crumble some crackers over it too….yum! So glad I discovered this site!

    If you need more spice, Rotel makes a spicy version of their product. You can never go wrong with bacon ;)

  48. Estelle

    Made this today.It is good..the consistency is right..I thought it needed something spice wise…..I am going to add a half clove minced garlic and exchange ham for bacon next time I make it. I think it can be a winner :)

    Loved it! I used all cream corn and used some left over roasted chicken instead of the ham. This is a very versatile recipe. About to put it in my crock again for tonight!
