Cooking Up Some Corn Chowder

September this year has kind of been all over the place. It’s ninety one day, it’s 61 the next. Since it’s fall and all though, when we feel that chill in the air we do what every household in America should do. We make soup. Not thin soup that leaves you hungry unless you eat a whildabeast alongside with it. Thick. Heavy. Yummy. Creamy Soup. That’s what I’m talking about, Willis!

Best thing about this recipe. It’s as easy as eating it. Simple. I mean, check out the main ingredients. Corn and potatoes.

Yum in yo tum. Make it, just do it.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve got this thing for canned corn. Seriously, I just think it tastes so freaking good. Probably because it’s covered in salt (right), but I eat it by the spoonful. Now you can use any type of corn, I used can corn. Go and pluck it off the cob if you want. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Once you got all the mixins’ together, just pop them in the pot. (No worries, there is a play by play below, too).

Confession. We left it on the pot like that for like 6-hours before we remembered to turn on the stove top and get things going. To our credit, we were working on this and this. Simultaneously. That kept us busy. I mean I was going to cook it, but the thing is, I started this pot at 1pm, thinking it would take much, much longer than it did. Once I figured out it was only going to take like 20-minutes from start to finish, it just sat like this on the cooker. No dairy products, so I figured we were good. ๐Ÿ˜‰

A few hours later, when it was closer to dinner time, we added the water in order to boil all the goodies and get them ready for our belly’s. From this point, you’ve only got about 30-minutes before this stuff is being spooned into your mouth. Get excited, America.

The final step is to add some milk and flour, to thicken things up a bit. You do this right toward the end.

Since my husband is a master bread baker, we also made a loaf of homemade bread to go along side our wonderful soup. It was the best fall dinner you could imagine.

Everything I was hoping for and more. We crumbled some cheddar cheese on top and enjoyed every last bite.

  1. I LOVE corn chowder. I didn’t even know it existed until about 5 years ago. I’m completely sold. I’ve made it a few times now with a slightly different recipe than yours (with peppers and carrots and… I don’t remember what, but I puree some of it in the middle). I kind of just make it with whatever I have, so I don’t follow the recipe exactly, but I can give it to you if you want! (OR, we can have a corn chowder making date!)

    I, too, love corn (fresh, canned, frozen). There’s a trick my mom taught me with fresh corn that makes it so much better. You cut off the kernels and then take a dull knife and “rub” off the remaining kernel ends and “milk” from the cob. Just include that with your fresh corn kernels. It’s got a lot of the good flavor!

  2. I absolutely LOVE corn chowder, it’s my favourite! Can’t wait to try out this recipe, I crave stuff like this when the weather starts getting cooler!

    I found you through Marvelous Mondays link party :).
