Happy New Year everyone! There’s always something refreshing about starting something new. I am excited to start off this new year. This crock pot potato chowder recipe is a great one to start the year with. It comes from a new blog I found called $5 Dinners. She set out his last year to spend only $300 a month in groceries and diapers.

For this year, she just won a year worth of groceries from Walmart. So she is hoping to spend only $50-$60 a month on groceries. She still is thinking she’ll need to spend some money because she has children with food allergies. As a result, she doesn’t think she’ll be able to get everything she need at Walmart.

This recipe she had on her site is an adaptation of a recipe from Recipezaar.

I have never been able to find a cream soup that you make in the crock pot. So I decided to give it a try. It turned out great, everyone ate it up. The crock pot made this very convenient. However, I do have to admit I still prefer the soup make the good old fashioned way with a roux. But this recipe will still probably come in handy on occasion.

I left the prices on the recipe that were included at $5 Dinners. Now, I think my ingredient cost were very similar. I do know that the cost for my potatoes was closer to 50 cents. My cream cheese was 69 cents. When I first made this, I didn’t have any green onion to top these off with. I couldn’t resist to not add a little shredded cheddar cheese. I also served it in the bread bowl recipe I have posted on here.
