Corn Chowder... This recipe is PACKED with flavor and is a family favorite! It will become a new go-to this fall and winter season!

Soup season is my favorite season. Seriously. I could eat soup/chowder/chili in a homemade bread bowl all year long if temperatures permitted. Nothing warms the body up quite like it. To me, this is comfort food.

This Corn Chowder recipe comes from my grandma, but I did some minor sprucing up to give it some added flavor. My husband raved about this corn chowder.

To me, the bacon was the secret ingredient it needed. My mom and I made this and couldn’t quite figure out what it needed until her neighbors came over and said that bacon was a must. Wow, did that ever liven it up! How could one go wrong with bacon though, really?!

If you are looking for a new family favorite recipe to throw into the dinner rotation this fall/winter seasons, give this one a try! It is sure to be a hit!

    Perfect timing. I took about 3beatings this weekend because I cant find a good CornChowder recipe... Everything else from your site has been Awesome. Cant imagine this being anything less.

    I made this and it was great! I used less salt because bullion cubes can have a lot of it. I substituted and used green onions instead of onions and this added great flavor and color. I love the recipes on this site and seeing the posts in the newsfeed on FB keeps me inspired about what to try next... I'm sure I'm not the only one.
