- 1 or 2 cans chicken broth**
- 1 can cream of corn
- 1 can corn
- 1 lb ham or fried bacon diced or kielbasa sausage (sliced into quarters)
- 1 onion diced
- 8 potatoes peeled and chopped into 1-in pieces
- 1 pint half and half
- 1/4 cup butter
Place chicken broth, cream corn, corn, ham (fried bacon or sausage), onion, and potatoes in the slow cooker. There may not look like a lot of broth, but with the water that cooks out of the potatoes and the half and half, it should be about perfect. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. Mash until desired consistency. Turn to warm. Add half and half and butter. Stir to combine. Enjoy!

Our favorite way to eat this chowder is with ham. However, I find it is more cost effective to use bacon or kielbasa sausage, and reserve using ham for when I have some left over - it turns the leftovers into an extra special treat.
**Tonight I accidentally added an extra (2 total) can of chicken broth to the crock pot. I didn't think it was possible, but my family liked it even better. I think that's how I will make it from now on. If you don't want your chowder quite so think, you might give it a try too.
