We enjoyed this at my house and it was simple to make. I was worried about it being too spicey for my kids so I used mild picante sauce. DH & I might have liked a little more zip but it still had a nice flavor and the kids liked it. I added some chopped smoked turkey from my freezer and about 1 cup of black beans along with the corn and picante sauce. I also used a bit less corn than called for. This is a very rich dish but a nice winter warmer. Leftovers the next day were very good too. The second time I made this, I wanted to use my crock pot. I combined all ingredients from step one in the crock and cooked for several hours. I did the cream cheese step an hour or so before serving. It worked great.
As written this didn't work for me. The texture was odd and then if I stopped stirring for more than a few seconds the cream cheese would separate. I wouldn't exactly say bland but it lacked something so I added a little bit of Velveeta and that did the trick. As written I have to give it a 3. Adding Velveeta bumped it to a 4.
LOVED LOVED THIS CHOWDER!! I didn't have frozen corn so I used 2 14.5oz cans (drained). This recipe can EASILY be modified. Next time, I might add some shredded chicken or a can of black or northen beans but I made it as is (with the exception of using additional corn) and it was great! I had no problems with the cream cheese and it was great in this soup. Will make this again and again! Thanks Cathy!
OOOOOHHHHHH my Gooooooooodddddddddddddd!!!!!!!!!!!
This chowder was quick, easy and absolutely delicious. I omitted the margarine and used ultra-lite Philly and it came out great!
OOOHhhhh my gosh, this was good! I added garlic to the onion, and a can of black beans to the soup. This was the BEST soup I have ever had. I crushed some tortilla chips on top, and was as happy as a clam! It is almost gone, I have to make it again!
I halved the cream cheese and doubled the corn and loved it! I've passed the recipe onto many people recently.
This is a delicious recipe. I added some black beans to turn it into a hearty meal.
