I love soups and chowders and this is one of my favorites. Creamy, flavorful, and it sticks to your bones. What a great dish for a cold winter's day.

Stove Top

Ingredients

1 lb
bacon
3 medium
onions, chopped
1
heaping tsp. garlic powder
3
14.5 oz. cans chicken broth
2
medium to large potatoes, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
6 c
frozen corn
3 c
cream or half & half
salt and pepper to taste
2 Tbsp
butter

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cook bacon until brown and crisp, about 5 minutes. Transfer bacon to paper towels to drain, leaving drippings in pan. Discard all but 2 Tbsp. of the drippings. When bacon is cooled, crush into tiny pieces. (I use a little food processor on "pulse" for this.)
2
Add onion to the remaining drippings and saute until tender. Add broth and potato. Cover and simmer for 5 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
3
Add corn and cream and simmer until all flavors are cooked together. When done stir in the 2 Tbsp. of butter.
4
NOTE: You can use more of the bacon drippings to add flavor to the chowder. Your choice.
