My husband and I took a trip to Tennessee where we had some of the best food. One of the soups we had was Corn Chowder, it was soooo good that I had to come home and try to make my own. Here is my version -- hope you like it.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Fry bacon in pan, crumble and set aside.
  2. Add onions and celery to bacon grease, sauté’ until lightly browned.
  3. Transfer onion/celery mixture to a large soup pan.
  4. Add cream corn, frozen corn, red pepper, butter, broth, chicken base, carrots, potatoes and pimentos.
  5. Cook for 30 – 45 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
  6. Mix together flour and a little water to form a paste.
  7. Add flour paste to soup add milk.
  8. You may want to add more flour paste, depending on how thick you like your chowder.
  9. Simmer for 30 minutes or until you are ready to eat.
  10. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  11. Prior to serving I like to add shredded cheese and sprinkle bacon on top.

Really good. The grocery stores in our area are on strike, so I had to ad lib some of the ingredients. Canned potatoes instead of fresh, and no creamed corn for example. Also, I used white wine instead of water to make the slurry with the flour. But it was great, nevertheless. Even better for lunch the next day. Thanks Kim.
