Slow Cooker Potato, Leek, & Corn Chowder

Good home cooking is difficult when your schedule is hectic. And that’s when the magic of slow cookers saves the day. Leave the ingredients to simmer in the morning, and come back to a full meal when you return home. This chowder is comfort food with less fat, because we replaced the cream with Greek yogurt. Don’t worry about fat and calories as you enjoy a good, warm bowl of this chowder.

    To clarify: the yogurt should be added at the end of the cooking time?

      Laura, Yes, add the yogurt at the end after cooking and then stir or blend and serve.
