Crock pot corn chowder

This recipe is from another cooking blog but I am including the version of it I made here because I had to scale it back to fit it into my 1.5 quart crockpot. The recipe as written is very low in calories and fat, so feel free to top with sour cream, plain yogurt, grated cheese, bacon bits, hot sauce, etc.

Crock Pot Corn Chowder
Prep time: 15 minutes before cooking, 5 minutes after Serves: 4

1 cup broth (mine was made from bullion)
1/2 cup milk
1 tablespoon corn starch
1 half a medium onion, chopped
1 bell pepper
1 peeled and chopped carrot
2 medium potatoes
1 cup frozen corn
Spices (to taste)

- Put the broth into pot. Mix (cold) milk and corn starch, add to pot.
- Coarsely chop all fresh vegetables. Add to pot.
- Add corn, and any spices you like (I added a couple of dashes of chipotle tabasco, 1/4 teaspoon of poultry seasoning, and a little fresh ground black pepper.)
- Let cook in crock pot on low at least 6 hours.
- Before eating, blend partially using an immersion blender, or puree half in a stand blender or food processor.
