This really is a great recipe. I substitute Chicken Broth for the water and at the end I add some cream (Heavy, Light or Half & Half) just to add some creamy richness. Also for a special twist add some cooked baby shrimp (peeled & de-viened of course) 15-20 minutes before serving. And plenty of cracked Pepper and Soda Crackers :-) Enjoy.

this has become a staple in our household! it is so versatile and some of the recommendations here have been great. i typically use broth in place of water, add a clove or two of garlic & other veggies (carrots, zucchini, turnips, whatever is on hand). i omit the sugar and add a tsp+ of cumin, paprika and crushed red pepper. about half an hour before chow time, i stir in a 1/2 cup of half & half or whole milk and 1 cup of chopped spinach. yum!

Why oh why haven t I rated this before? Been making my corn chowder this exact way for years now. Its absolutely the best corn chowder you will ever find! Few changes tough :) First of all skip the water and add 2 cups of good quality chicken stock. I make my own and freeze for later use. Secondly I add a 1/2 to a 1 cup of heavy cream few minutes before serving. This is a wonderful meal that everyone one in my house enjoys!
