      Yum! I love corn chowders and I've really been into sweet potatoes lately, lol. What a great combo this makes. The only thing I did differently was to not include the leeks as they don't have them at our small town market. Very good and flavorful. Thanks Bayhill for a nice keeper on a cold and rainy day. Congrats on your Week 13 win in the Football Pool.

      Wow! I love corn chowder and this was no exception. I made some modifications and eveything was delicious! I actually used turkey bacon and did not end up using the cornstarch to thicken it. I only had whole milk, but it still ended up creamy from the sweet potatoes. My step-daughter and I each went for thirds!
