I’m formally obsessive about this bacon corn chowder. It’s the right factor to make when you’ll be able to nonetheless get nice recent corn (although you should use canned corn in a pinch!). That is cozy consolation meals at its best.
This creamy chowder solely will get higher because it sits, making it glorious leftover. It simply serves 4-6 folks. It’s tacky nature would make this a extremely enjoyable dish to serve in little bread bowls. There’s half a block of Colby jack cheese melted proper into the soup, giving it a fantastically decadent really feel.
It is a very fast soup to throw collectively. I in all probability made this in thirty minutes. Professional tip: have your whole veggies prepped earlier than you begin and it’ll go tremendous quick. Make sure you minimize your potatoes into small cubes in order that they prepare dinner rapidly.
Add cream to style. I didn’t even measure! I simply felt it with my soul. Add slightly, give it a stir, give it a style, and add slightly extra till you’ve reached the right stage of creaminess. I served this with tortilla chips to dip or crumble within the soup. Yum!
