Potato Corn Chowder

This winter had been especially hard on us here in New England and I've been putting my slow cooker crockpot to good use making crockpot freezer meals, soups, chowders and stews.

A big part of enjoying healthier eating is buying healthier foods, and that means making smart choices where it matters most – at the supermarket. Choosing the freshest, healthiest foods is an important first step toward making healthy and delicious meals your whole family will love.

Packed with flavor and ready in minutes, Green Giant Boxed Vegetables are available in a wide variety of flavors, many featuring mouthwatering sauces and seasonings.

Be thrifty and frugal in the kitchen and stretch your food dollars by using leftovers for your family meals.  Chicken can be used in a variety of ways. Mix it with rice to create a chicken casserole dish. Stir fry it with frozen vegetables and pasta. Make chicken salad for a light dinner on a busy night.

Other meats are just as versatile as chicken. Leftover beef roast can be used for stews and soups. Combine with egg noodles and sauce to create beef stroganoff. Slice thin and stir fry with vegetables for beef fajitas.

Crockpot Leek, Potato and Corn Soup or Chowder

6 slices bacon, chopped
5 cups shredded frozen hash brown potatoes
3 leeks, white and light green parts only, cut into 3/4 inch dice pieces
1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of potato soup, undiluted
1 can (about 14 ounces) reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 ribs celery, sliced
1 can (4 ounces) evaporated milk
1 package Green Giant Corn
1/2 cup sour cream

Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until crisp and browned. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towel-lined plate. (I choose to microwave my bacon rather than saute in skillet)

Set aside 2 Tbl. bacon. Combine remaining bacon, potatoes, leeks, corn, soup, broth, celery and evaporated milk in crock pot slow cooker. Cover and cook on LOW 6 to 7 hours. Stir in sour cream and serve, sprinkling each serving with reserved bacon.
