    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.

    Potato Corn Chowder

    Marti Horan from IOWA CITY, IA

    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.

    Great Chowder

    Maggie from Encinitas, CA

    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.
