Corn Chowder

When the leaves start falling, there’s nothing better than tucking into a warm bowl of soup. Our Corn Chowder recipe is no exception. Rich, creamy, and loaded with your choice of toppings (bacon anyone?), you can count on this recipe to get you through the winter months. While you take the kids to soccer practice, your NESCO Slow Cooker gets the job done fast. We recommend serving with a side of fresh bread.
