This chowder is tasty, creamy, cheesy, and hearty. It's great for a day where there is a little nip in the air. I followed the recipe exactly except for adding some corn that I had leftover from a previous meal. The chowder is easy to make and packs tons of flavor. Yum!

My husband and I were delighted with how delicious this chowder tasted. The only addition I made was a 1/2 t. marjoram. Had a thick, creamy texture and a wonderful rich cheesy flavor. Next time, I might add some ham, bacon, or even shrimp would be good. Thanks for posting this.

Excellant chowder NurseDi, thanks for posting! I cut the recipe in half and made it for supper tonight. very tastey, the cheddar was a wonderful finish, nuummmyy!! We do a lot of soup through the winter and this will certainly be made again. I used the other half of the can or cream corn and a part of the other half of the cheese in some muffins, I served with the soup. Very tastey supper.
