This simple slow cook soup simmers to perfection in just 5 hours and can be ready to eat on a cool afternoon! Instead of the time to cook bacon, I like to make a yummy ham dinner the night before and use the left overs  the next day for my chowder.

  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 4 potatoes, chopped
  • 2 14-16oz cans of corn (drained) OR one small 10-12oz bag of frozen corn
