This is a corn chowder recipe I got from a cooking class I took. I thought it was amazing! Vegetable stock may be used instead of chicken stock. Creamed corn may be added to intensify the flavour. Cooking times are approximate.

Was going to make just half a recipe of this chowder, but then decided to go for the whole thing & share with some neighbors! Used Vadalia onions for this as well as adding almost 2 cans of cream corn! Because of additional nutrition, I left the potatoes unpeeled! The result was an extremely tasty chowder! Another time I might include shredded chicken instead of the pork, just for a change! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup cooking game]
