Slow Cooker Showcase: Crab and Corn Chowder

Each Thursday during the Fall and Winter The Centsible Family will showcase a slow cooker (crock-pot) recipe that one of the Mavens of Money have tried and tasted. By sharing we hope you will be able to save a little time during the week as we all know saving time is just as valuable as saving money. And you will be able to enjoy a hot meal at the end of your day.

This week’s recipe is Crab and Corn Chowder by Amee at Madame Deals that is sure to warm you on a chilly night! Prep time should be about 25 minutes and will cook for seven hours and yield about 8-10 servings.
