Reviews forCheesy Corn Chowder
"I agree this is a very rich and delicious soup. Not too good for my cholesterol, however. I added celery, granulated garlic, some creamed corn."
"Loved this! Will for sure make it again."
"Excellent chowder, and it made a huge pot. I served this with BLT sandwiches."
"Wonderful. !! I have made this several times !!!!!!"
"Delicious! I didn't have the exact listed ingredients, but I think my substitutes addressed some of the reviews that suggested it needed a bit more "zip." I used some homemade seasoned chicken broth I had frozen instead of the water and bouillon and I used shredded pepper jack cheese along with some shredded cheddar and instead of regular Velveeta, I used the new Queso kind. My husband loved it and I did, too, perfect meal along with a veggie tray and hot rolls for a cold winter night! And, as promised it made a nice big pot and we are both looking forward to leftovers!"
"This soup was delicious! I would definitely make it again. Even my picky husband said he liked it! Can't wait to eat the left-overs!"
"This is good but I feel it needs some zip to it. I made it as is, but if I were to make it again, I would add celery and perhaps some shredded chicken and chopped jalepenos. Good but needs a bit more."
"Good recipe for a cold winter day"
