    I’m not sure that I like corn chowder, but with bacon I may just try it out. Bacon makes everything better and more interesting!

    This looks so delicious! It reminds me of the Corn Chowder that Applebees used to serve! We like a little kick to our corn chowder, but this recipe looks phenomenal and it has bacon—who doesn’t love bacon!!

    I have not tried corn chowder before! This sounds like a great chowder to make for the winter time. I know my husband would love it because of the bacon in it plus perfect for leftovers for him for lunch a well.

    Just imagining the taste of corn chowder with bacon already makes me salivate. I love soups and thick ones are really delicious. This is a great recipe to make for one that has a good appetite for bacon.

    This looks super yummy and I bet my daughter would love it. She is usually pretty picky when it comes to chowders and soups but this looks like something she would even love! I think I may have to try my hand at making it because I think she would love it!

    Amazing pictures! I will be making this without the bacon. I love corn and especially when it is in a hot soup. I’ve always wanted to make corn chowder and your recipe is easy to follow. I’ve made potato and leek soup, but never tried adding corn to that!

    Chowder is actually my favorite but I have never had it like this before. We do seafood chowder a lot and use cheese. I’d love to try it with corn and bacon, YUM!
