Quick Corn Chowder is a tasty, filling soup recommended by Diane Brewster of Highland, New York. "When my husband and I decided I'd stay home with our new baby, his salary had to be stretched pretty thin," Diane recalls. "I became an expert at preparing meals with more 'sense' than dollars!"
"This comforting, cheesy soup is perfect for a cold winter's night-and it doesn't have to simmer for hours," jots Darlene Drane from Fayette, Missouri. "The creamed corn adds a nice touch of sweetness. My family enjoys it with dill pickle spears and crusty fresh-from-the-oven bread."
I'VE SERVED this chowder for so many years that I don't remember where I got the recipe. It's one of my husband's favorite meals.
It serves the two of us generously. If there's some left over, I freeze it for another time.

"I used to cook for a tearoom, and this rich, sunny-colored chowder was a customer favorite," reports Isabel Kublik of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. "It's a snap to make in the microwave because there's no scorching."
"This thick colorful chowder was so well received the first time I made it that some of us had to go without seconds," notes Kera Bredin of Vancouver, British Columbia. "Now I make this hearty soup often."
Cream gives richness to the canned items that make up this satisfying chowder. "I sometimes make it in the slow cooker, so it can simmer while I finish work around the house," informs Karen Johnston of Syracuse, Nebraska.
Five common ingredients are all you'll need to prepare Sue McMichael's hearty full-flavored chowder. "This is a terrific soup, particularly as the cooler season sets in," writes the Redding, California cook. And at 55¢ a bowl, it's economical as well.
