Colby Corn Chowder

"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."

    My whole family loves it, especially my 8-year old granddaughter. It's one of her favorites.

    I made this soup last night and my husband and I both loved it - can't wait to eat the leftovers.
