Easy corn chowder

Also adapted from the new cookbook. It's in the slow cooker today on this gray, rainy day, when I've got a sick almost 3-year-old (!) laying on the couch, being very demanding.
You don't have to have the sick pre-schooler in order to be able to make this recipe, though.

1 qt. chicken broth (do yourself a favor and get the low sodium, low fat kind)
1 bag frozen corn
1 small onion, diced
3 red skinned potatoes (I think any potato would work), diced
1 small green pepper, diced
1/2 c. heavy cream (half and half would also work)
salt and pepper to taste
bacon, fried and crumbled

Combine broth, corn, onion, potatoes, and green pepper in crockpot. Cook on low for 8 hours. Mash half (or use an immersion blender) to thicken, and add cream. Cook on high until heated through.
Use the bacon as a topping. (You could also use some cheese as a topping, too)
