Yummy and extremely easy to make. I loved the sweetness that the creamed corn added. This soup is a good one for both kids and adults. It's not terribly fattening, either; although you could always change that by adding cheese! ;) Thanx for sharing!

A definite winner!!! Will definitely make again. My family loved it! I was wondering how a small can of ortega chilies would taste if added! Hmmmmmmm Thank you Libby for sharing!

This recipe is a keeper! I used unpeeled red potatoes and a red onion as well as the pepper it calls for, so the color is really pretty. I used whole milk, and added some ham in with the bacon. I doubled the frozen corn, and used Ms. Dash type seasoning that I had in my pantry rather than buying thyme.

This was a pretty good recipe. I sauteed everything in a stockpot so that I could triple the recipe. I also did not have fresh corn (or frozen) so I used 3 cans creamed corn and 1 can sweet corn. I also added about 3 tbsp crushed red pepper flakes and lots of salt and pepper to spice it up.

Excellent tasty soup which I found out I like served hot or chilled. I also added heavy cream. Plus I added fresh chives to give it some additional color as well as flavor. Definitely a keeper! Thank you for posting!

Love this soup. Simple, but great comfort food on a cold winter's day

Being the queen of 'use what you have', I modified this recipe a bit. Added about 2T. prepackaged REAL bacon bits to the 1 1/2 slices of bacon I had, used 3 potatoes, 4 c. milk, 2 c. turkey broth I had laying around. Was out of onion, so used the last of my onion powder and a packet of onion soup mix. Omitted the red pepper and thyme. Browned 1 lb cut up pork tenderloin in 2 T. italian dressing and added that at the beginning so it would finish cooking with the rest of the ingred. Very yummy and easily adapted for people like me! lol :)

Wonderful comfort food! Only changes I made (to our taste) was to double the potatoes and halve the thyme. Double the recipe, you will want to have this as leftovers!

Excellent recipe. I used half milk and half heavy cream, and I used four strips of bacon insted of two. My wife wanted a little more meat so I removed the casing from 3 hot italian sausage links, browned them and added them to the soup, It was delicious. A great winter chowder. The bacon adds great flavor.
