Weekend Cooking: Corn & Potato Chowder

I first heard about this yummy Corn & Potato Chowder from  Kelly @ The Well-Read Redhead. It sounded like something the family and I would dig so I decided to whip up a batch. 
A big thanks to Mama Loves Food for the recipe!

I had a photo of the chopped up ingredients in the crock pot. I somehow deleted it so you only get the nearly finished product here. Oh wait, you can see it on Instagram if you have a burning desire to. I don’t know about you, but I always have a burning desire to see diced potatoes, onions, corn, etc. (AND BACON, yum)

I was excited to use my immersion blender again! 

You get two pictures of that because it’s just so exciting. Immersion blender for the win!

The color of this, admittedly, is less than appealing. Blending celery will do that. 

But adding in the heavy cream drastically improved the look and taste.
How yummy does this look? It would have looked even better had I saved some of the crispy bacon pieces to garnish it with. Whoops. 

This is a hearty, stick to your ribs, kind of soup. At first taste I thought it needed a kick so I added some extra seasoned salt and a pinch of cayenne pepper. That did the trick.

You can find the original recipe here. Give it a try, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

What are you cooking up this fall?

  1. Mmmmmmm!!! And it's like split pea soup. Is there anything less than appealing than snot green slop? But YUM! I asked Scott if he thought corn and potato chowder sounded good and he gave me a negative. I might make it up anyway, blend it, and not tell him what's in it (minus the bacon…). 😉

  2. LOL, so true. I was glad that adding the cream changed the appearance so dramatically or I might have had a hard time eating it 😉 I'm forever fooling my family into eating things that they THINK they don't like. Go for it!

  3. I used my immersion blender on my tomatoes in the slow cooker because they were whole instead of pureed and found out the hard way that the blades need to be totally immersed or you get everything around the crockpot splattered. I love corn and potato chowder but have never pureed it!
