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!

  4. Susan McDermott

  5. Georgette

    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.

  7. Lynn

    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.

    I have written all the receipes down and can't wait to try all of them, bread pudding, corn chowder, cheesy bean dip. How can I get a cook book or more of your Receipes?

    This chowder is so delicious! My family loves when I make i!

    I recently won a soup cook-off at work with this recipe. Everyone was raving about it, so I gave them the recipe and your website.

    Thank you for so many amazing recipes!

    This chowder is a keeper! I made this for the Superbowl ... fresh and delicious. Thank you for the recipe!

    Is it possible to make this without potato or substituting the potato? Unable to digest potatoes since pancreatic cancer surgery. Love corn chowder and miss it!

  14. Lesa


    So very good. The only adjustments I made were using fresh whole corn from my garden and added garlic and onion powder. Served in a bread bowl. Yummy! I've made several recipes from this blog and I love them all. This one is ⛤⛤⛤⛤⛤

  15. Amy

    This was delicious. I added garlic and used half and half instead of milk and cream. My picky husband even liked it!

  16. Stephanie

    This is delicious!! My husband and I will be making this again for sure! When we were sautéing the onions and celery in the beginning we also put the bacon in too, just to get the flavor of the bacon!

  17. A Martin

    I never comment on recipes but I had to! This was SO good! I added more corn to really thicken it up. I am a beginner cook and I got rave reviews, definitely doing this again!

  18. Sherry

    I altered the recipe and made fajita chicken toasted corn chowder just added fajita flavored chicken and toasted corn. Everyone in my house loved it

    Made this for dinner with hot bagel sandwiches and it was a hit. I think I would add more white and black pepper but other than that I wouldn't change a thing. I love so many of the recipes you post!

  20. Janina

    Fabulous recipe! Followed recipe to the letter, except for bacon. My daughter doesn’t prefer bacon. Yes she’s mine, but I just don’t get it;). Anyhow, I added a whole rotisserie chicken instead. It is amazing! I will definitely sprinkle it with some bacon, cheddar, and scallions myself, however it is just as delicious without toppings.

  21. Kate


    Oh this is SO good! Definitely a keeper, the whole family loved it. Love every recipe of yours that I’ve tried :)

  22. Sue Glenn

    We made this soup a few months ago and loved it! I used frozen white corn and it was great!! We froze a container and it came out great. So today my husband and I did 4 x the recipe so we could freeze some for future meals or perhaps share with someone! Thanks ♥️ For this delicious recipe. Great for this rainy day?
