I got this wonderful recipe from one of my favorite cook books, New Dieter's Cookbook from Better Homes & Gardens. It's low in calories, but tastes like a guilty pleasure! When I make it, I double the broth, milk, and flour to make it more soupy and less chunky.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine broth, corn, onion, sweet pepper, and black pepper in medium saucepan. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, about 5 minutes or until veggies are tender.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, stir together milk and flour. Stir into broth mixture. Cook & stir until thick and bubbly. Cook stirring constantly 1 minute more.

A keeper! Made this last night for three of us and had leftovers for my DS's lunch today; he really enjoys corn chowders and this one was no exception. This was very quick and easy to put together; I did saute the onions and sweet peppers for 2-3 minutes before adding broth & corn, otherwise I'm not sure that they would have been tender - I also added an additional 8-10 ounces of water. Very filling and low on calories! I think if I had extra time I would throw half of the mixture into a food processor/blender and blend until smooth, then combine. Will be making again, thanks!

Very simple and quick. I like the addition of bell pepper. Thank you.
