I made this soup for a dinner gathering of friends and it was a HUGE hit. I had made this soup once before and it was a big hit then too. It is very easy to make and all my guests raved that it was the best corn chowder they have ever had. I felt like a pro! Would definitely recommend this recipe. A winner!

I hate to give a review like this but I can't honestly let it go. I made this for my dad last winter and the soup turned into an inedible mess. I followed all the directions and even consulted the reviews of the other cooks. Still we each tried to grin and bear it but after 3 bites we couldn't handle it. Maybe I missed something in the instructions...

I was looking for a recipe to use fresh local corn so I used 5 ears of scraped corn. I also left out the nutmeg as many others suggested (nutmeg just seemed odd) and added a pinch of red pepper for an added kick. We like spicey foods. Also added 1 local grown medium sized yukon gold potato. Great taste.

i am surprised at the number of naysayers with this recipe they must be crazy because it is delicious. i too skip the nutmeg because it just seems weird and potentially icky and i also add a whole lot more of the shredded carrot just because it makes it a little heartier. lucky me i live just a block from boudin's (offering the most delicious bread san francisco is famous for) so i serve the tasty soup in sourdough bread bowls. everyone loves it. we fight over leftovers. sometimes it gets ugly.

Great chowder. I read the reviews before making this and omitted the nutmeg as recommended by others. Did not use creamed corn used 2 cans of whole kernal corn drained instead. I also added some minced garlic (little less than a tsp) when cooking the onions in the butter. Also I'm not too fond of celery so I left that out completely. I added potatoes red pepper and a small can of hot chili peppers for some spicy. Finally I didn't have skim milk so I used 2% and it turned out just perfect.

This was a very good recipe and simple to make. This is not a thick chowder but it's pleasantly sweet. I added a little extra salt which gave the soup a bit more zest.

This was okay. I think it needs some potatoes in it. Didn't like the flavor of the nutmeg in this one. Sorry:(

Leave out the nutmeg! I made it twice once with and once without nutmeg because the flavor disturbed me. It is much better without. I also used soymilk which substituted very nicely. For the meat eaters I topped with imitation bacon bits and which they loved.

I loved it. I added about two cups of potatoes because I love them in chowder more carrots thyme garlic powder and a dash of dill instead of nutmeg. And used 1 can of evaporated milk instead of the other two because that is what I had. Had to cook longer because of the potatoes and extra carrots but other than that followed the cooking directions. The extra creamed corn gives it a nice sweetness. It was great.
