I have made this a few times now and it is always great - I also sub'd the cream of Potato for the cream of Mushroom soup, also added bit more bacon(cooked till crisp) and added can of whole kernel corn w/ the can of creamed corn. This is an easy BIG HIT in my house - I serve w/ 'Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread" from allrecipes...reeeeeeally good!!

This recipe has potential, but even after cooking it for 35 minutes the potatoes were still cruncy, and I cut them into small chunks. Next time I guess I'll have to cut them smaller, if i decide to try this recipe again. Also, the milk scalded, but that's my own fault I guess.

Followed other reviewer's advice -- used cream of potato soup and added 1 cup frozen corn. I omitted bacon, cooked onions in olive oil. GREAT taste -- an instant family favorite! This is far, far better than any other corn chowder I've ever had -- will definitely make it frequently, especially over the long, cold Maine winter!

Great recipe, I've made this many times and it's always a hit at my house. I usually double the recipe to make sure there are lots of leftovers!

This chowder was really good. It was quick and east to make. My only mistake was adding to much salt. Next time I'll taste it as I go along and season it accordingly. Other than that it was great.

This is a really good tasting corn chowder. I made like the recipe but did add a can of whole kernel corn and a finely chopped carrot. My husband who really is not a fan of corn chowder really enjoyed this basic recipe.I will make again and again, Thanks for the recipe.
