Quick and Rich Corn Chowder

My family and friends are always ready to dig right in when I serve my chowder. It's thick and rich...and pairs well with a favorite salad or sandwich. They never guess it gets its start with a can of condensed soup.—Dorothy Faulkner, Benton, Arkansas

    I doubled this recipe and added an extra can of regular corn, drained. My husband said it wouldn't be "corny" enough without the addition and I agree! BUT, he said this is his new favorite soup recipe of the ones I've made!! It was delicious!!

    This soup is one of our favorites. I make it every year for our neighborhood fall party, and the pot is scraped clean every time. One year I decided to make something different for a change of pace and everyone was mad at me for not making the corn chowder! I usually double the recipe because we love the leftovers.

    Not as good as I hoped from reading others reviews. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't that good. The leftovers just sat in our refrigerator.

    I've made this recipe many times and it's so yummy. Sometimes I add a 4oz can of diced chilis. It adds a little something extra, but the recipe is delicious on its own.

    I have made this recipe several times & I am always thrilled with how easy and delicious it is. I usually double or triple the recipe since it never lasts long enough for me to have leftovers for lunch the next day!

    Came out great the first time but was missing something, so the next time I made it I added imitation crab and it was wonderful.
