Love soups made with Carnation Evaporated Milk as they taste so rich and are creamier. This is one of my fav soups!
Very very good soup! A big hit
Creamy Corn Chowder w/basil
My husband and I really enjoyed this recipe and I will make it many times in the future. Not using cream was a plus. Less fat and calories. Basil added much to the flavor. Great recipe.

I just made this soup but I used homemade chicken broth instead of water. I then omited the Maggi and it was great.

Potato Corn Chowder
For a variation, I peeled and chopped 3 large yukon gold potatoes,and added them before I added the milk. Boil for 10-12 min then add the milk and follow the rest of the recipe.
This is the best Corn Chowder. It's easy to make and my family loved it. It also makes a great presentation and would make a great 1st course at any dinner party.
Great taste, great texture, easy to make. Reheats well for lunch at work, too!
This corn chowder is excellent AND easy! I made a huge batch for a potluck and everyone raved about it! My family loves it with hot bread sticks. I used my homemade chicken stock, but I'm sure the cubes as called for in the recipe are just as good.
