Corn Chowder is a type of thick soup or vegetable stew. This is made from cream style corn along with some bacon or prosciutto.
All chowders use some sort of cream to make the dish richer. This recipe makes use of half and half. I understand that this ingredient might not be available in some locations so try using heavy cream or whole milk instead.
The cream style corn that I am referring in the recipe is the canned corn that you can buy in supermarkets. You can open the corn and then cook the contents right away, or you can make it more concentrated by placing in a food processor. Add some potato and you can convert it to corn and potato chowder. The possibilities are endless.
I like having Corn Chowder for dinner. I try to always eat light at this time of the day so a bowl of delicious Corn Chowder is enough.
