Favorite Corn Chowder Recipe – Hearty and packed with flavor. It is thick and rich and made with fresh summer corn. A family favorite!!
We love soup! I mean even if it’s 95 and sweltering out we have been known to order soup when we go out to dinner. Or make it at home.
So making this Favorite Corn Chowder with summer fresh corn from the farmers market is always on our list in the summer months. You can of course use frozen corn instead.
We have made a bunch of different corn chowder recipes in our lifetime. This one is basically like most recipes a combination of a bunch of recipes. Our Favorite Corn Chowder has a few simple ingredients and everything is either in our fridge or pantry. Saute some onions and celery in a large pot butter first.
I mean who doesn’t have baon at all times?!! Cook up 9 slices and set aside.
Haha.. Seriously most of these ingredients are staples in our house. In the winter we always have frozen corn instead of fresh. So there really isn’t a reason you can’t whip this up in no time.
We used red potatoes this time but any potato would be fine. We use yukon gold a lot too.
Yes we love lot’s of bacon!! You can use as much as you like.
