Frontier Chowder

Total Time

Prep: 10 min. Cook: 35 min.


8 servings (2 quarts)

The smoky hint of bacon in this chowder makes me think of cooking over a campfire; that's why I named it as I did. While it's simmering, I toss a salad and bake some biscuits for a meal that's ready in next to no time.—Maggie Rogers, Elizabethtown, Kentucky


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 medium green pepper, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped

  • 1 can (17 ounces) whole kernel corn, drained
