Hearty Corn Chowder Recipe

Hearty Corn Chowder Recipe

"EVERYONE in my wife's family is a corn lover, so her mom came up with this wonderful recipe to satisfy their appetites. With the bacon, sausage and potatoes, it's hearty enough to be a one-pot meal, but it's also really good with the chicken."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Cook: 40 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound sliced bacon
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2 cups cubed peeled potatoes
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cups frozen corn
  • 1 can (14-3/4 ounces) cream-style corn
  • 1 can (12 ounces) evaporated milk
  • 6 ounces smoked sausage links, cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 1 teaspoon dill weed

Directions

  • 1. In a large saucepan, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove to paper towels with a slotted spoon; drain, reserving 2 tablespoons drippings. Crumble bacon and set aside.
  • 2. Saute celery and onion in drippings until onion is lightly browned. Add potatoes and water. Cover and cook over medium heat for 10 minutes. Stir in corn, milk, sausage, dill and bacon. Cook until potatoes are tender, about 30 minutes. Yield: 4-6 servings (1-1/2 quarts).

"Really good. I used 1.5lbs of yukon gold small potatoes qtrd and left on the skin, for the sausage i used a box of Armour's Brown and Serve spicy, and I added an additional cup of chicken broth because I thought 1C of water just isn't enough for all of that stuff. Lastly, I would recommend keeping the bacon bits on reserve and adding them last as opposed to mixing them in - is especially a better plan if you plan on a reheat!"

"This was pretty tasty. I wish I would have made a double recipe though because it really doesn't make much."

"Yummy! I did make a couple of substitutions because I used what I had on hand. I didn't have the smoked sausage or evaporated milk. I did have bulk hot pork sausage which I browned then drained. I also didn't have evaporated milk but after my sausage was drained I sprinkled it lightly with flour then added 2% milk. I heated till it thickened up. Very good!"

"Great soup. Used 3 ears of fresh sweet corn. ( cooked ) I had no bacon so I sauted the veggies in some reserved drippings from the sausage. I also thickened mine up with a small amount of corn starch.. I had no creamed corn on hand but my ears of corn rendered more than 2 cups. Very pleasing and it is chunky *

I liked the addition of the Dill. Though I did use less.

"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 ."

"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!"

"LOVE IT! I did modify it a bit, I added jalapeno diced, a pinch of cayenne and then at the end I added some pulled chicken breast, instead of sausage - meal in a pot!"
