Tammy's Review: 

This is an excellent soup, and one of my favorites to make and serve. I love the creamy texture, along with the flavor of the corn and onions, especially. Getting the right amount of salt is crucial to the success of this soup. I recommend tasting it as you season. I am not a person who likes to taste-test foods as I prepare them... I like to just throw things in and be done. :) But having enough salt (and not too much salt!) is the last step in making this a soup people will go wild about. :) My rating: 10/10

Comments

I was slightly skeptical when Tammy had first suggested this recipe. I mean, who has ever heard of corn chowder? Clam chowder, yes, but corn chowder?

I am pleased to report that this recipe has an exquisite texture and a rich, mellow flavor that is sure to please--especially on a cold winter's day. This recipe works well as a main main dish, but I prefer it as a side dish. I personally have found that it accents grilled cheese sandwiches or garlic bread very well. This is one of my favorite soups.

LOL! This one was mine once... ;)

See, I love to taste test this, so I don't mind because it's SOOO yummy. Now I wish I had bought some corn to go with my snowy potato soup...

This was a very tasty soup! I didn't have kernel corn on hand so I used 2 cans of creamed corn... which made the soup taste very much like creamed corn. I think kernel corn would have been much better and I'll try that again. It was a very rich soup (in my opinion) so I wouldn't make it often, but it was different from the norm around here and a very nice change.

(I also second Joshua that garlic bread goes good - never tried the grilled cheese, but I could see how that might go too)

What a wonderful soup! Very easy to make, inexpensive and tastes absolutely wonderful! I used 2 cups frozen corn and about 2 tsp powdered chicken broth. The fam loved it!
