EASY Corn Chowder Recipe
There is nothing like a warm bowl of Corn Chowder
I am sharing a recipe for Corn Chowder that we make all the time (ok my husband makes it). I love it the most in the fall and winter when it is brisk outside and bowl of Chowder tastes so much better when it warms your belly. I love thick and creamy soups and this is one of them - with a side of biscuits that is all you need. So I hope you will take the time to try this favorite and have it become one of those recipes that makes it into your recipe book.
The other thing about this Chowder is that it is so versatile - you can add in more veggies, chicken, use fresh corn from the cob or add more spices to suit your tastes. But I am going to share how we like it.
My Corn Chowder Recipe - Did I mention this is so Budget Friendly?
I always double my recipe when making this so we have lots of leftovers - this list is not doubled.

- 1 Medium Onion Chopped
- 1 Red Pepper Chopped
- 1/3 Cup All Purpose Flour
- 3 Cans (14 1/2 oz) Corn - You can sub fresh corn here too
- 2 1/2 Cans of Chicken Broth
- 1 1/2 Cups Heavy Cream
- Bay Leaves
- 1/2 Teaspoon Thyme Leaves (I usually sprinkle in some ground Thyme)

It is important to also have a good big bowl when eating your Chowder. The bowls I use come from Williams and Sonoma and are white porcelain chili bowls - they are extra large and can hold 28 ounces. They were a gift to me and have become my favorites and we use them for everything.
There are so many types of Chowders out there - so check out some of these great Cookbooks that have lots of great recipes.
I have a special cookbook that was given to me at my bridal shower so many years ago. I use this book for recipes that we love and make over and over again. Recipes from other family members go in there as well. This book will be handed down to my kids. I also make little notes in there too - so it will be fun for them to use when they have their own families. I also have a box of recipes that contains index cards of recipes from all who attended my bridal shower - that is really neat too.
