Easy, Hearty Corn Chowder

Michelle Koletar/Mertz


I wanted to make corn chowder, with what I had on hand in my fridge & cupboards. So, this is what I came up w/ & it was lovely! Not too heavy but flavorful. My son said "This doesn't taste like other corn chowders. It tastes better." So, I'll go with that. :)
If you don't want to use curry, use a dash of nutmeg @ the end to give it a richness.

How to Make Easy, Hearty Corn Chowder


  1. Melt butter & saute onion & celery over med heat. (Sprinkle w/ a little salt).
  2. Add the slice of bacon, chicken broth and potatoes & let simmer about 20 mins or until potato is tender.
  3. Mix a can of the chicken soup w/ milk & stir. Add to broth cooking on stove. (Keep on low). Add a splash of curry & a little white pepper. Add the diced red peppers (I just diced up a few from the jarred kind). Drain most of the corn & add in. Stir & simmer until it is to your taste. Add more salt as you cook, to your liking. When ready to eat, take out bacon slice & fry & crumble to use as a garnish w/ scallions, if you like, or fresh parsley. You can add a little more curry if you want, but I didn't want it to overpower the flavor.
