5 Comments for "Skillet Corn Chowder"

This is such an easy recipe and it is just as good without the cheese! I like it with Italian seasoning for extra flavor. For a heartier soup, I like to add 1 cup frozen corn and white beans or chopped potato.

This recipe was made for our food pantries. One comment we heard over and over was that it lacked seasoning, so I'd suggest using salt and pepper, and as the other commenters suggested, maybe offering hot sauce or chili powder to go in it. Such an easy and affordable recipe!

This is a great and simple recipe. One of my favorite ways to kick this up a notch is to add a 16oz bag of the frozen "Normandy" mixed veggies (broccoli, carrots, and cauliflower) as well as a bag of frozen peppers--easy to find year round and very limited prep. One bag of each is a good amount for this size recipe. It also scales up really well for a food bank demonstration or large potluck.

It's hard to beat the ease and speed of this recipe and it makes a great side to a meal. We do like it spicer so some hot sauce kicks it up.

I made this with leftover homemade cream corn, added what I had on hand (some potatoes, green chiles, and a little turkey).  It was delicious!
