Chicken, Bacon and Corn Chowder

Total Time

I recently made chef #157425 wonderful Chicken & Corn Chowder and it is the base for this version. We loved the spicy flavors of the Rotel and the smoky taste of the cheese. Using the Green Giant brand, the whole kernel corn turned out slightly crisp but cooked through, which is what we were looking for. This is also a quick weeknight meal to put together for your family.

  3. In a small bowl, mix soup and broth together until smooth.
  4. Add soup mixture, Rotel, corn, bacon and chicken to the vegetables and cook for 20-25 minutes, stirring frequently.
  5. Add milk and cook for another 5-10 minutes.
  6. Just before serving, add the cheese and lots of fresh ground pepper to taste and heat until the cheese is melted.

We really liked the smoky flavor to it. As I was making it I was not sure if we would like it. I was pleasantly surprised. I left out the jalapeno because we can't handle hot. I used Delmonte Fresh Cut corn so it stayed crisp.

Great chowder! I used Tyson Grilled Chicken Strips, added more bacon and left the seeds in the jalapeno. This recipe will definitely be made many times this winter! Thanks for sharing, Nimz. ***Made for PRMR***
