Bacon and Corn Chowder {Slow Cooker}

by Laura

Today’s slow cooker recipe for bacon and corn chowder is a soup that utilizes Progresso’s new Recipe Starter.  This recipe specifically uses the roasted garlic flavor.  I was excited to try them out when I saw them at the store.  

Plus, they happen to be on sale for $1.50 and then I had a 50 cents off coupon.  Well worth trying for $1.  My oldest son especially loved this one.  I can pretty much get the boys in my house to eat about anything if there is bacon involved.

Now that the Progresso Recipe Starters have been discontinued, do you have a suggestion of a substitution for the Progresso Creamy Roasted Garlic Recipe Starter?

So glad you posted this! I bought a couple of cans when they were first introduced to our local market and had no idea of what to make with them.
