Quick Corn Chowder with Bacon
Think delicious corn chowder is too complicated for a weeknight meal? Think again.
Why This Recipe Works
Homemade corn chowder recipes often turn out bland, with little to no corn flavor. We wanted a rich, creamy corn chowder recipe that didn’t take all day to prepare. We found that either frozen or fresh corn works in this recipe. When using fresh corn, we needed about a dozen medium ears. We used a chef’s knife to cut the kernels off the husked and silked ears. We pureed half the corn with chicken broth to infuse the chowder with a deep corn flavor. For even more depth of flavor in our corn chowder recipe, we cooked the onions and potatoes in the rendered bacon fat.
