Good with jazz. This was a great base recipe! When preparing it I added a pinch of basil cinnamon and nutmeg for the sweet tooth and 1 can green chiles and a pinch of cayenne for spice. For added creamy I used 2 tbsp of sour cream and a half stick of butter. End result: soup to write home about.:) Read More

As other reviewers have said this is a great base. My revisions: 1 - I used cream instead of milk. I'll probably use half&half next time. Also I drained the potatoes to get all the water out. It gave it great texture. 2 - I didn't use canned corn. I used corn that I had frozen from last summer. 3 - Salt & Pepper. I added at least a Tablespoon of ground black pepper. 4 - Frank's RedHot! Perfectly blended with these ingredients & gave it a nice kick. Thank you for a good base recipe that is easy to maniuplate to still get a great chowder! Read More

Over all I enjoyed this recipe. My 10yr old son and I made it for his 4th grade class we made a few changes I added 1/2 lb of crisp bacon I used shoe peg corn. I also added small diced carrots one time and you can also use sausage to make it a sausage corn chowder. I crisped the bacon first then sauteed the onions in the bacon grease. Read More

Thought I could help this recipe by adding garlic and hot peppers and sprinkling with cheddar cheese. Nope not so much it was still really really bland. It needs to be richer maybe 1/2 and 1/2 instead of milk. I don't think I will bother as there many other better soup recipes ot there. Read More

Awesome base but I added garlic to the beef and the onions and used heavy cream and 1 percent milk. Oh and bacon. It was amazing after that. So easy to make and its an easy recipe that I usually have all the ingredients. Read More

Super Bland easy to make just needs a lot of flavor would be easier to start with a different base and make stew or soup. Read More

This recipe had some issues all of which can be fixed. For flavor we will try chicken broth to cook the potatoes instead of water. The potatoes did not cook when the recipe doubled - we will try microwave or boiling water. For thickening we will try flour or cornstarch slurry. Until then only three stars. Read More

This chowder was EXTREMELY BLAND. I added 5 beef boullion cubes hoping to give it some flavor but it didn't help that much. If you attempt to try this recipe anyway I would recommend frying up some bacon (until crisp) and adding it. That might make a big difference. Read More
