This was so good! I made a few changes: didn't peel the potatoes, used chicken sausage, added carrots and parsley, used chicken broth instead of water, and 1 cup of half/half instead of the evap. milk. I dissolved 1T of flour in the cream before I added it to the soup to thicken it up a bit. Next time I will probably add another can of whole kernel corn, too. I love corn chowder and this was the best yet! Read More

This was easy to make but I thought it had a distinct canned corn taste. It seemed quite sweet...I would consider trying it with frozen corn. Read More

WOW! SO good. The only actual changes I made were using 1/2 & 1/2 instead of the evap. milk and chicken broth instead of water. Some recommendations: use italian sausage a mix of red and yukon gold potatoes (they're what I had on hand and turned out great!) add a couple splashes of Tobasco and use red onion =). I also added some spices based on personal preference. This is AWESOME and easy to tweak to perfection. (Note: I let this simmer for about an hour and the consistency was perfect!) Read More

I just made this last night and my husband and I both thought it was very good. I did use chicken broth instead of water and red potatoes unpeeled. For the sausage I used keilbasa (however you spell it) I also took some to my parents for lunch today and they both enjoyed it. I will definetly make this again! Read More

My family absolutely went nuts over this chowder; particularly my 13 year old daughter who loves creamed corn to begin with. I used two cans of creamed corn only added some red onion and diced roasted red peppers for some color. Delish!!!! Read More

So good! I loved this and will definitely make again. I used two cans of creamed corn and omitted the can of whole kernel corn. Also added two chicken bouillon cubes to the water. Read More

I was so surprised at how delicious this was. I was skeptical because I had never used evaporated milk before and I hate creamed corn. That being said I was in a chowder mood. I tweaked the recipe a little bit I added half a pound of breakfast sausage and a package of bacon ends which I fried together and added to the chowder. In the bacon/sausage grease I fried the onions until they were just beginning to become translucent so they still had a crunch. Fabulous recipe my last corn chowder sucked this one completely redeemed the meal. Thanks!! Read More
