I found this recipe via Pinterest! Surprise surprise! I wanted a crock pot recipe and I loved loved loved the addition of the green chili’s!! I changed it around a little bit because I like my corn chowder thick, it reminds me of my grandmothers that she used to make! I never even liked corn chowder until I had her recipe! Her secret addition was the bacon, so the bacon is a must for us! The green chili’s don’t really make it spicy so don’t be afraid, just leave our the hot pepper if you don’t want it too hot. My husband proceeded to add red pepper flakes on top of his, yikes!!! Not me!! If you don’t like your chowder thick you can leave out the potato flakes, the half and half and creamed corn thicken it a bit, it just wasn’t enough for me so I added the flakes until I got it to the consistency I wanted
Cup of cooked bacon, diced (optional)
Garnish soup with croutons, cilantro, bacon bits, or green onions and lots of freshly ground pepper.
