corn chowder | thumb in plum

I have the incredible luck of working with women who not only know how to cook but are willing to share their recipes. With the cold-front that's moved in we've been enjoying (a little) winter weather. This, coupled with the impending holidays, has created a heavenly outpouring of detailed accounts of foods that warm the body and soul.

And what better way is there to warm oneself while filling your belly than with a soupy delight? A couple friends from work, Mauna and Page, have shared their recipes for a yummy bacon corn chowder. It's creamy, tasty, and oh-so-easy. I have combined both of their recipes and added a couple spices of my own. Mauna has told me this chowder pairs well with some cheesy biscuits or a tuna melt. Yum!

Corn Chowder Recipe
  • 1 can creamed sweet corn
  • 2 cans cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 bag frozen corn
  • 1 onion, diced and halved
  • 3 celery stalks, chopped
  • 7 slices of bacon, chopped
  • 4 potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1 box chicken stock
  • 1/2-1 tsp chili powder (optional)
  • 1 bay leaf (optional)
  1. In a large pot fry the bacon adding half the diced onion halfway through cooking time. When the bacon is crisped drain some of the fat.
  2. Add all other ingredients, except creamed corn. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer. When the potatoes are tender stir in creamed corn. Done
Aren't you lucky I have such awesome coworkers? I'll be keeping a lookout for more recipes from these lovely ladies.
