    Thank you for sharing this lovely recipe. What a great chowder it made. Made exactly as written and wouldn't change a thing. The chowder was silky, creamy and had a lovely flavor. The bacon was the predominant flavor in the chowder, next time I would use a little less. Made for What's on the Menu? Tag Game.

    I made this last year for a dinner party. It went over so well that I got requests this year!

    Very good. Used chicken broth and frozen corn. Added corn with potatoes. Rather than making a rue, I just added the milk to the soup and thickened with cornstarch.

    I love corn chowder and have been looking for a good recipe. This is almost how my mother in law makes hers. She (and I both) sautee an onion and green bell pepper then add the water and potatos and corn and let that cook then add all the spices and the roux. Sometimes we add some smoked sausage or ham or some browned ground sausage. One of the best I have seen on here! Thanks!
