Slow Cooked Ham and Potato Chowder

Slow Cooked Ham and Potato Chowder is one of my all time favorite slow cooker recipes. It is easy to put together and is creamy and cheesy. It’s great comfort food, especially during the fall and winter.

Ingredients for Slow Cooked Ham and Potato Chowder

The ingredients are very simple.. I like either cream of chicken or cream of mushroom soup, but this time I used both. I don’t use any seasonings, but thyme and black pepper would probably be good if you wanted to spice it up a bit.

Chopped red potatoes

I scrub the potatoes really well and always leave them unpeeled. I love potato skins, and they are full of fiber, B vitamins, iron, and potassium. Plus they add a nice texture.

Chopped ham

I always buy a center cut ham slice and chop it into small cubes.

Shredded cheddar cheese

I like to use sharp or extra sharp cheddar cheese. Cabot Extra Sharp is particularly good.

Ingredients in slow cooker

Place potatoes, ham and cheese in the slow cooker. Whisk soups and milk together and pour on top. Cook on low for about 6 hours, or high for about 4 hours. Stir at intervals to blend the ingredients and add more milk if needed.
