Corn Chowder with Bacon

Corn Chowder with Bacon Recipe

It’s finally cooler in Florida now and all I can think about is warm soups and lots of hot tea and coffee.  For this soup, I wanted a little taste of summer in a winter soup, so I made this corn chowder with sweet frozen corn. I used a mixture of sweet yellow and white corn along with red and green peppers and lots of smoky bacon. This isn’t only a delicious chowder, but it’s also very economical. It’s very filling, and you can make a ton of it without spending alot.

    We woke up to falling snow this morning and all I could think of was soup. This would hit the spot perfectly!

    So nice to see a chowder you can make with frozen corn, as it’s way out of corn season here in New England.
