Here in Illinois, we are definitely waking up to some chilly temps. Here is a great soup recipe that warms my family right up.

Slow Cooker Hearty Ham Chowder

4 cups potatoes (russet or red), cut in 1-inch cubes
3 cups cooked ham, cut into 1-inch cubes
1 can (15.25 oz.) whole kernel corn, drained
1 can (14.75 oz.) cream-style corn
1 can (12 oz.) evaporated milk
1/4 cup chopped green onion
1/2 teaspoon each pepper, dry mustard and garlic powder
cup shredded cheddar cheese

Place all ingredients, except cheese, in slow cooker. ( I use one of the new liners.) Stir gently , using a wooden or plastic spoon, to mix ingredients. Place lid on slow cooker. COOK on LOW for 8 to 9 hours OR on HIGH for 3 to 4 hours. CAREFULLY remove lid to allow steam to escape. Gently stir in cheese. Sprinkle each serving with additional shredded cheese, if desired. Servings: 8-10
