Curl Up with a Warm Bowl of Corn Chowder

When you walk in the door and have the smells of dinner dance on your tongue you know you can sit back and relax.  A slow-cooker (aka CrockPot) gives you the ability to kick off your shoes, scoop up a big bowl of something warm, and relax after a long work day.  Tonight is corn chowder, and this one takes the cake as something simple!  Plan a day next week to prepare this delicious slow-cooker meal!
Fiesta Corn Chowder
Serves 4
1 bag frozen corn (if you can find the Southwest Corn use it)
1/2 bag Oreida frozen potatoes with peppers and onions
1 can Campbell's Fiesta Cheddar Soup (you can use the plain cheese soup, too)
1 can chicken broth, low sodium
3 chicken breasts, cooked and cubed (or frozen cooked chicken strips, rotisserie, etc.)
Pour corn, potatoes, cheddar soup, and broth into slow cooker.  Turn on (low for 6-8 hours or high for 4 hours).  Add the chicken in during the last hour to 30 minutes to reheat.  Garnish with cilantro and serve.  Toss in a salad for a complete meal! Enjoy!
