I had a can of creamed corn in my pantry. So I scaled this recipe to half and used only 1 Tblsp flour and 2 cups 2% milk. I thought that the addition of the creamed corn gave it the perfect chowder creaminess. Added a bit of chipotle powder and cumin as suggested by a reviewer and some real bacon bits. The popcorn was a fun garnish! I'll make this soup again with my changes. Read More

This is a simple and quick recipe but rather bland for my taste. It is better with additional salt and pepper.Maybe adding bacon would be a good idea. Read More

This was rather bland but with the addition of 1 teaspoon of cumin 1/2 teaspoon chipotle pepper and four strips of bacon the flavor was made more southwestern and considerably more flavorful. Read More

I added mushroom soup to this recipe I didn't like the original recipes sweetness so I added about 3 cans of mushroom soup in a can then I gave it some spice with garlic powder and other seasonings. This is a good recipe though I have modified it each time I made it. Read More
