Very good.

I used frozen shopeg and yellow corn vs the 1 can of regular corn, but did use the cream corn as well.

Added milk and half and half combo vs evaporated which I am not a fan of.Also added a bit of vegetable broth to thin the chowder out a bit.

More seasoning was needed for
me and I added quite a few scallions for color as well as for flavor.

I did garnish with bacon and grated white cheddar.

Thx for a nice easy recipe.

One quick note:

Made again for a friend ... the type of crock pot will matter. My older one took 6 hours, my new crock which I used the batch I just took to a friend cooks much hotter. 4 hrs was plenty, 6 would of been dried out.

Very yummy even my picky husband ate a bowl. The reason people had bad results w/ consistency is they used the frozen corn need to use canned corn...I really loved it and plan to make again soon

Oh. My. Gosh. This is soooo good, my whole family raved about it. Just absolutely delicious! I served it with some whole grain buns and it was a filling and satisfying meal for us. I did make a couple of changes though. After buying all of the ingredients and planning it for dinner, I quickly realized I hadn't even read the title correctly and didn't see that this was a crock pot meal, LOL! Not to worry, I just threw it all on the stove top in a pot, and added some 2 percent milk as I went along to thin it out as it was really thick. I can't say how much milk I added, I just eyeballed it as I went along until it looked right. Creamy, but not too thick. I'll make this a thousand times more, it was THAT good!

We loved this chowder! I fixed this as the recipe directed, but found that I had to add 1 1/2 cups of chicken broth after 4 hours. It was starting to stick to the bottom and get to brown on the sides. The addition of the broth made it just right and the flavor was delish! Thanks, Carole in Orlando

This looks way better in the picture than it did in my crock pot. The flavor just isn't there either. I'm glad other people like it, but we don't. Sorry.

We thought that the overall flavor of this soup was good. However, as others have said it was much too thick for us. I did make it on the stop top rather than crock pot, so I browned the bacon and onions first. I should have added the hash browns in then as well because they were a little bland just heated in the soup broth. I had to add some skim milk because there wasn't enough broth. I did make extra and froze and it has reheated well in the microwave. Thanks!

This was great! However, I only gave it four stars b/c I think my extras added a little more flavor (jalapeno, garlic, carrot, celery, cayenne and hot sauce). I took another's suggestion and added some broth b/c I knew it had to cook the full six hours while we were at work. I will make this again for sure! Thanks!

This is sooooo good!! I doubled the recipe and used fat free evaporated milk. I didn't have trouble with it drying out like some did. I thought it was perfect. I cooked on high for 4 and 1/2 hours and it was perfect!! Thanks for a great recipe!

We felt this needed more liquid (which I added with just some regular milk because I didn't have any more cans of evaporated milk). I also felt it needed much more salt and pepper. With these additions and then adding the bacon at the very end so that it was still a little crispy....yum. Thanks for any easy, comforting meal. Also made, Beer Bread.
