It’s crockpot season! I finally dusted off my slow cooker, which was covered in a lot of Butters’ fur, and put it to use immediately. And even though it’s hitting close to 90 degrees F, this cozy chowder is an absolute must.
Now the beauty of this recipe is just how easily this comes together. Simply throw everything into the crockpot, let it cook on high for 4 hrs (or low for 8 hrs), and then stir in your butter and cream.
Done and done. Super easy, right? It’s practically fool-proof.
Best of all, this soup is enough to feed an army and freezes beautifully. Just be sure to hold off on the cream and butter until after defrosting.
Now if it’s still 90 degrees F in your area, just be sure to crank up the AC and serve yourself a bowl of this hearty soup. It’ll keep you cozy all year long!
