Quick Corn and Potato Chowder

Easy Potato and Corn Chowder

After December’s cookie marathon I don’t think I can post any more sweet recipes.  I need some savory recipes for a little while.

This quick corn and potato chowder was comforting, filling and about as easy as it gets.  You can dress it up with different toppings of your choice to give it some extra flavor.  I added spinach, chives and bacon because that is what I had on hand.    Some cheddar, sour cream and pickled jalapeno’s might be good, too.

You could also make with vegetable broth for a meatless meal!

If you make this corn and potato chowder I hope your entire family likes it as much as mine did.  I am sure there will be plenty of cold nights coming up that are calling for a quick soup recipe.  This is a great one to try.  Enjoy!
