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.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 8 large potatoes, peeled, and cubed into 1-inch squares
  • 2 (14 3/4 ounce) cans corn, with juice
  • 2 (14 3/4 ounce) cans cream-style corn

  • 2 large onions, cut in 1/2, then thinly sliced
  • 2 quarts milk

  • 12 cup margarine

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!

I made this minus the bacon. I used salt pork, fried it, then broke it up and added it to the other stuff. Oh what flavor this chowder had! So rich, and delicious. Don't change a thing. It's perfect the way it's written here!

The flavor of this chowder is so delicious! It is nice and thick with ingredients and the broth has so much flavor, I found myself spooning out the broth to eat first! You can thicken it if you like, but I prefer it just the way it is! I used salt pork instead of the bacon and it made it taste so yummy! DH suggested that I make this again next week he liked it so well!
