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.
Here in the "Cornhusker State", we make lots of dishes with corn! Even my kids love this soup, I've discovered. Although we live in the city, we love to spend time at my parents' cabin on a lake surrounded by farms and cornfields.
I started cooking at a local restaurant when I was 16 years old. This creamy chowder was one of the soups we made. The recipe had been passed from cook to cook— but had never been written down, until now!
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.
