Linda's Corn Chowder

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Lindas Busy Kitchen

I love this recipe, especially in the winter when it's cold outside... I always have mine with some oyster crackers floating on top, and a lg. dill or sour pickle on the side! If you love chowders, then this one will "Hit The Spot"! If thickened, this is wonderful in a bread bowl too.

This chowder is one of the most flavorful chowders I have ever had. This isn't the thick kind of chowder but the New England style Corn Chowder the way it's supposed to be! Rich in flavor and so good!
