    Corn Chowder

    PATRICIA PFEFFER from Frederick, MD

    It was a warm welcome on a chilly day in Maryland. Easy to prepare and even easier to enjoy! Sometimes I add chicken or ham. Actually, adding any leftover meat has only made it better. I have used fresh corn, canned corn and frozen corn - they all tasted wonderful!

    Delicious and filling

    Regina Wise from Columbia, SC

    I have prepared this recipe many times for my family, adding some shrimp to round it out. The corn is so sweet and the shrimp make it a whole meal. I'll bet it would be good with chicken, too.

    Great Cold !

    BARBARA HOWE from Pensacola, FL

    This is a great soup!I did the southwest style. The first time i made it, i did it per the recipe. Everyone loved it! The next time, i did not do the blender portion, and added some "shoe string" carrots - still great! I had a left over bowl for lunch at work - cold - and this was wonderful and filling on a hot day! Decided at that point this unblended style would make a great partner for tortillas - and it was!

    Corn Chowder

    SHIRLEY FARROW from SAN JOSE, CA

    When I made it, left out peppers as I didn't have any, added crisp fried bacon and substituted dried basil for fresh (basil out of season). It was still good. Think this is a recipe that you can "play" with and it will still be good.

    Corn Chowder

    Debbye Trueman from FRONT ROYAL, VA

    I'm not a big fan of corn chowder but I decided to make this because it was really cold outside and we need something to warm our bones. I'm really glad that I did. This recipe was really easy to follow and it was delicious. My husband loved it and so did I. I will be making this recipe again it was so much better than any I have ever tasted.

    Versital Soup Recipe

    Anna Flinton from Oakdale, CA

    This started as a quick and easy recipe to cook with my grandchildren however I found with a very few additionals I could quickly change the flavor. Add a bit of chicken or bacon, chili powder and cumin for a Southwestern twist. This made a new family favorite.

    Easy and Excellent

    Pat Pierce from ANTHEM, AZ

    I made the Southwest version of this chowder. It was a hit! Did not use the cilantro, but added a dash of cumin. I'll definitely make this again...perhaps with leftover turkey from Thanksgiving and a bit of shredded Monterey Jack cheese.

    I made this for my husband who is very fussy. He thought it was outstanding in every way. He did suggest adding a potato, but thought even without it was one of the best soups he ever had. I will definitely make it again, and soon.
