Southern Corn Chowder

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by True Texas

From a cookbook I picked up sometime ago. I've changed the instructions just slightly. You could always use the bacon drippings with the butter to sauté onion and celery.

I think I prefer creamed corn over chowder. Needs a little more seasoning.
