BACON AND CHICKEN CHOWDER


Yum! Just the thought of bacon and chicken in chowder form cooking slowly all day in the crock-pot just warms me up inside. Any slow cooker soup or chowder has my heart these chilly days and boy is this one ever a keeper! I mean, just look at that scrumptious bacon topping the creamy goodness! 


Yeah, you're going to want to make this!

  25. You had me at cream cheese! And my PC will love the bacon. I am so hungry right now, wish you could deliver a big steaming bowl. But since that isn't likely, I am going to open a can of Campbell's and grumble. Pinning and will definitely be making this coming month!
