Nothing warms the belly on a cold wintery day than a bowl of hot chowder!
I like chowder better than a brothy soup. I always seem to eat the “stuff” out of brothy soup and not drink the broth.
That’s what I was so excited to make this crock pot meal. Just turn on the crock pot, toss in the ingredients and step away.
Step away from the kitchen. Leave. The meal will make itself. If you don’t have a crock pot. I suggest you get one. It makes meals so simple, quick and easy.
The ingredients below. Well not all of them. Didn’t show the half-and-half or the hash browns. But you get the point.
First step, add all the ingredients to the pot. Turn on crock pot and back off. Leave. Last step, eat!
How’s that for an easy recipe!
All the ingredients are in and cooking.
Almost done…after 4 hours of doing nothing to it!
Dip in the ladle and pour into a bowl. Top with crushed up tortilla chips and cilantro!

Recipe from Pillsbury.
I adapted my pot a bit, I did not add half-and-half and I didn’t have cumin, so I used 1/2 pkg. of taco seasoning.
How simple is that recipe! Great for a day when you don’t have any time to spend in the kitchen slaving over the hot stove.
I loved this meal. It was the right amount of spice for my tastebuds.
And we had plenty leftovers to enjoy for the rest of the week! Yeah for that~!~!
What is one of your go-to meals that doesn’t take any effort to make?
Do you use your crockpot or is it collecting dust?
Today, January 19th, is National Popcorn Day! Happy Poppin’!
Fitting, because last night when I got home from a long day at work I ate a small bag of light popcorn sprinkled with white cheddar cheese powder! YUM~
