Slow Cooker Canadian Bacon Double Corn Chowder

This thick and rich chowdah features corn and hominy flavors married with Canadian bacon and onion… and a bit of zesty sweet banana pepper.  Perfect comfort food for a cold, blustery day.  It is versatile in that cooking atop the stove or simmering all day in a slow cooker can be utilized.  Either way, it is a delicious family go-to.  I paired it with a crusty french bread.  Give it a try.  Let me know what you think.

Mmmm…Chowdah!!
