Chowder is a classic comfort food here in the Northeast, especially during cooler weather. Whenever I make a trip home to Pittsburgh, Mom has this simmering on the stove for me.

"This was ok but kind of bland next time I would had another can of cream corn and some regular corn. I did add chicken witch was a nice touch to the recipe."

"First time making corn chowder. I made this in the slow cooker today as we were home with yet another snow day.. I used baby potatoes cut into chunks. I added some cooked chopped bacon and used chicken broth instead of water! I wanted this to be a little thicker so I added some flour at the end to thicken it up some. Kids loved it! I would also use less butter next time.."

"Since I only had one can of cream corn on hand, I added a cup of leftover chopped turkey to the soup. I also sauteed some celery with the onion and used a cup of heavy cream instead of 2 cups of milk. It was excellent!"

"This has become a "do-again" recipe in our house. Delicious! My husband loves it, as do my children (ages 7 and 4). It's very good, not hard to make, and tastes even better the next day. We all highly recommend it!"

"Have made this many times; which says a lot, considering I don't repeat recipes often. That being said, I haven't made it the same twice.

Turns out great with milk or a 12 oz can of evaporated milk. I normally add an extra potato, use broth instead of water, leave out the salt, and decrease the butter to 1-2 Tablespoons."
