Simple Corn Chowder Recipe

How is chowder different from soup? Simply put, chowder is a thick type of soup. Creamed corn is used to thicken this chowder which is loaded with healthy vegetables. Low fat ham and bacon bits are used to add flavor, but a vegetarian variety could be made by leaving these meat products out.

This Simple Corn Chowder is easy to make. By adding and adjusting the vegetables to suit your family’s tastes, you can make a custom meal for them. Preparing your sandwiches while the soup heats will give you a chance to maximize your time. If your time is really short, you can put out sandwich ingredients and have each person build their own sandwich. Then, dish up a warm cup or bowl of soup. This turns a sandwich into a meal.

Simple Corn Chowder Recipe


3 cups water (If you want a really thick chowder, reduce the water to 2-2 1/2 cups.)
1 teaspoon Lawry’s Seasoned Salt
1 tablespoon dried parsley
1 cup coarsely chopped peeled carrots
1 cup coarsely chopped celery
1 cup coarsely chopped sweet bell peppers
½ cup coarsely chopped onion
½ cup coarsely chopped peeled red potatoes
8 ounces coarsely diced fully cooked ham (I use a low fat ham steak.)
¼ cup cooked bacon bits (I use the pre-cooked bacon bits or get them from the salad bar at my grocery.)
½ to 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes or Chipotle pepper (optional) (You may also use canned jalapeno or green chilies or finely diced fresh chile peppers.)
1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon finely minced cilantro
2 cans Green Giant Creamed Corn
1-12 ounce can of evaporated milk
Salt and pepper to taste.


In a 3 quart saucepan, bring the water, Lawry’s Salt, and dried parsley to a boil. While you are waiting for it to boil, chop the vegetables. This takes about 10 minutes. After the water comes to a boil, add the carrots, celery, bell peppers, onions, and potatoes. Over high heat, bring the water back to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer the vegetables, uncovered, for 12 minutes, or until they reach your desired level of doneness. While the vegetables are cooking, chop the ham and cilantro. When the vegetables are done, add the ham, bacon bits, hot pepper, lime and cilantro. Stir gently for a minute, continuing to cook over medium heat. Add the creamed corn and stir. Then, stir in the condensed milk. Continue heating over medium heat until heated through. Do not bring this to a boil. Adjust your seasonings and serve.

This makes about side 6-8 servings of chowder to go with your favorite sandwich. It’s also a great soup to serve to guests along with pinwheel sandwiches.

Pairs well with:

Ham Salad Sandwich
Melted Mixed Cheese Sandwich
Spicy Pinwheel Sandwiches
Savory Pinwheel Sandwiches

Don’t let the hustle and bustle of your busy life cause you to eat food that isn’t tasty. Create a quick soup and sandwich meal. When you pair a fantastic sandwich with a nice, hot soup, you can have a complete meal in a jiffy.
