Ingredients

  • 2 Yukon Gold potatoes peeled and diced
  • 1 onion diced
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 3 strips bacon chopped
  • 2 1/2 cups corn kernels
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups sodium-reduced chicken broth
  • 2 cups water
  • 4 teaspoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups small broccoli florets
  • 1/3 cup whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup shredded old Cheddar cheese

Method

In slow cooker, combine potatoes, onion, garlic, bacon, 2 cups of the corn, paprika, thyme, salt and pepper. Stir in broth and water.

Cover and cook on low until potatoes are tender, 6 to 8 hours. Using potato masher or hand blender, mash several times to break up about half of the potatoes.

Whisk flour with 1/4 cup water until smooth; stir into slow cooker. Add remaining corn, broccoli and cream. Cook, covered, on high until slightly thickened and broccoli is tender, about 20 minutes. Sprinkle each serving with cheese.
