Hearty Black Bean Chowder - Crock Pot

Total Time
8hrs 10mins
Prep 10 mins
Cook 8 hrs

I'm not really sure what makes a chowder a chowder, but this is thicker than soup and not as thick as stew.... so I'm calling it a chowder. Throw it all together and 8 hours later, it's done!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine everything EXCEPT cilantro and sour cream in crock-pot.
  2. Cook on low for 8-9 hours. I like to turn crock-pot to high the last 20-30 minutes to allow soup to thicken.
  3. If using, top with 1 tablespoon of sour cream and sprinkle with cilantro.

Great dish! I added some minced garlic and chopped jalapeno pepper. It was very enjoyable. We also tried the leftovers over some leftover rice, and that was a great combo too. Thanks for sharing!
