This is my daughter Vicki's favorite soup ever. While she is away at school, I make large batches and freeze it for her so that she always has a taste of home.

How to Make Vicki's Favorite Cheesy Corn Chowder


  1. Melt butter in a large soup pot
  2. Add onion and celery. Cook about 5 minutes until onion is clear.
