Chef recipe tips

  • It is important to grind half of the corn and add the other half whole to the soup. This method accentuates the soup’s texture delicacy and enhances the overall richness of flavor.
  • If you don’t like bacon, you can replace it with pork brisket.

How to Store Corn Chowder Soup?

To maintain leftover chowder’s freshness, store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for approximately 3 to 4 days.

A rather heavy-to-digest soup (due to the combination of various sources of saturated fats in one dish). I can recommend this recipe only for those who are looking to gain weight, do not have high cholesterol, and have a strong digestive system or a fast metabolism. To make this dish even slightly "lighter," you can try replacing regular milk and cream with their plant-based alternatives (rice, oat, or soy milk work best). This way, you'll reduce the additional burden on your gastrointestinal tract by eliminating milk protein and lactose, which can cause unpleasant feelings of heaviness and bloating.

Watch How To Make It

For an extra layer of depth, infuse the chowder with a hint of smokiness. Before adding the vegetables, briefly sauté them in the rendered bacon fat. This small but impactful step will elevate the overall flavor profile, marrying the essence of bacon into every spoonful. Let the smoky charm transform your corn chowder into a culinary masterpiece!
