"I made this Corn Chowder tonight and we found it to be very good ! We all agreed that this was worth having again ! I did not use the dill weed because I had none . I did add more whole milk to make it more soupy as I was afraid that I would burn it . I served it with ritz crackers ."
"Omitted the dill. But loved the chowder! It was amazing!"
"Fantastic recipe. Very easy to throw together and so very tasty. I used Mini Smokies and 3/4 lb of bacon and it's just perfect. My hubby likes it so I know it's good!!"
"I doubled this recipe and used less dill weed. I also added bacon because my family loves bacon, and subscribe to the "you can never have too much" theory. :)"
"I made this recipe, this morning for lunch on a hot summer day! I love anything with corn in it and this chowder is out of this world! I love it, I can't wait til my husband try's it! I added 1/2 cup more water to make it a little more soupy but still a great hearty texture! Thanks taste of home for this wonderful recipe!"
