Recipe by Sophias Mom

My husband grew up on comfort food - and one of his fav's was always his grandma's corn chowder. Considering she won't relinquish the recipe, this is the closest I can get. The recipe makes a ton, but I freeze half for an easy weeknight meal.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large Dutch oven, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp, about 10-15 minutes. Remove bacon to drain, and drain fat, leaving 3-4 tablespoons in pot. Add onion and celery, and cook until soft and translucent, about 4-7 minutes. Add potatoes, toss to coat, and cook for 1 minute. Add chicken broth, bring to boil, and cook for 10-20 minutes, or until cooked to desired tenderness.
  2. Add creamed corn, hominy, frozen corn, evaporated milk, and pimiento. Add seasonings to taste. Allow to come to a bubble, and heat through, but DO NOT boil. Add milk, half and half, or heavy cream to thin out soup, if desired.
  3. Serve with saltine or oyster crackers, if desired.
