I am glad I found this recipe. I had gotten some local (Central Florida grown) fresh corn from a roadside seller last weekend. I had been busy all week so I wasn't cooking much and I needed to use that corn up before it went bad. I did change a few things with the recipe like I didn't use all milk, I had some light cream on hand that also needed to be used, I didn't have any onions but I had one leek left from a batch I had bought to cook another dish last weekend. I basically had to make do with what I had on hand and items that needed to be used in something---truly what people did in the past---you use what you have on hand in a soup and throw it in. I did add some garlic--I ALWAYS have to use garlic and I did add a meat---just some sliced deli ham. I also put in some Bragg's Aminos and Lea and Perrin's Worcestershire Sauce. I also only had some small white potatoes, but all together---I made some tasty potato corn chowder. This would also be a good base to make it a chicken corn chowder, a New England clam, crab or fish chowder too. I definitely recommend this recipe and it was an easy and quick one to make. The only thing I would say, for me the amounts of ingredients were fine for one person---I got two meals out of it, but if you are going to make a batch for a family or group of friends with both hungry kids and adults----I would double, triple or quadtriple the ingredients to feed them--they are going to eat it up and the basic recipe really would not go far enough for a crew like that....I used to cook aboard ships and shore stations in the Coast Guard and I sure would love to have had this recipe on hand to feed my fellow Coasties...especially on a cold winter day before they would go out on patrol or after coming back from one....

Recipe was amazing! I made it vegetarian by using Better than Boullion vegetable base in place of the chicken stock and also added just a clove of garlic to give it a little more kick. Also I used whole milk because I am a New Orleans vegetarian and I wanted to give my native of Michigan boyfriend a taste of what a real New Orleans lady and NOLA cooking could offer him lolol. Really I miss and crave crab and corn bisque and this reminds me of that because I add some slap ya mama or Tony's and serve it with French bread to give it that same reel.

Very good. Did not have Yukon potatoes. Will make sure I have them next time. Used Russet. Also used fresh frozen corn. Will definitely make the soup again.

This chowder was wonderful! I did add a little marjoram and nutmeg, which my husband and I really enjoyed. A nice "meatless" meal and something I'll definitely make again!
