Great Chowder

Love soups made with Carnation Evaporated Milk as they taste so rich and are creamier. This is one of my fav soups!

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.
