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!

We loved this. I used beef fry instead of bacon to make it kosher and left off the Worcestershire sauce instead I just used some extra salt. Will make this again!

This is one of my favorite comfort foods. I have used this recipe for years with the exception that I have always used milk instead of the water. Tonight, I will be adding the shrimp.

This was easy and tasty. I used the little shrimp and the half and half. I served it with grilled cheese and everyone loved it. I had little leftovers. Thank you

I used the suggestion of Bob LeBlanc and it was wonderful. I found out that half way through the cooking process, I needed to add more water (or broth) I added a 1 1/2 cups more. At the last 20 minutes of cooking I added a cup of 1/2 and 1/2 (we use the fat free one). The recipe made about 16 cups of soup. It only took 20 minutes to fry bacon, then the potato mix and the rest was put in the crckpot and stirred occasionaly.

Great recipe! Tastes so great and I loved how easy it was to put together. Made the house smell great and I kept picking at it before time was up!! Both my fiancé and I really enjoyed this and I'm not usually a huge corn lover. It was creamy and packed with flavour.

I thought I would need the 5 quart crock pot but it fit in the smaller 3.5 qt.
I used turkey bacon, used Splenda instead of sugar, broth instead of water and added a few more onions. Yummy.
The only thing I may change the next time work be more liquid/creamed corn
