This hearty chowder combines the rich flavors of beans and bacon, creating a comforting and satisfying dish. The slow cooker method allows the flavors to meld together, resulting in a delicious and flavorful soup.

How to Make Bean and Bacon Chowder in a Slow Cooker

To make this bean bacon chowder, start by rinsing 1½ cups of dried navy beans. Place the beans in the slow cooker along with 1/2 cup of chopped carrots, 1/2 cup of chopped yellow onion, and 2 large cloves of garlic, peeled and chopped. Add 1½ quarts (1½ L) of chicken broth to the slow cooker, along with 1/2 teaspoon of dried oregano for added flavor.

Next, cook the chowder on low heat for 8-10 hours or on high heat for 4-5 hours, until the beans are tender and the flavors have melded together. During the last hour of cooking, add crispy cooked bacon to the slow cooker, stirring it into the chowder for added smoky goodness.

Once the chowder is ready, serve it hot with a sprinkle of fresh parsley on top. The creamy texture of the beans, the savory bacon, and the aromatic herbs create a delightful combination of flavors that will warm you up from the inside out.

In summary, making bean bacon chowder in a slow cooker is a simple and delicious way to enjoy a comforting meal on a cold winter day. With minimal effort, you can create a hearty and flavorful soup that will please the whole family. So grab your slow cooker and get ready to savor the warmth and deliciousness of this bean bacon chowder.
