This was awesome! Used white pepper instead of black and heavy cream instead of half and half as that is what I had on hand. Based on my husband's raves this is going into my favorites

Amazing! It takes a bit of time to prep with all fresh ingredients, but it's well worth it. The wife is in love with this recipe and the kids eat it up, too!

This was awesome!!! I added tilapia to the vegetables when simmering and subbed turkey bacon. Tons of flavor. Topped it with cheese and what chowder is complete without oyster crackers... Very hearty meal, my son can't stop eating it

It smelled great but it was not the best tasting. I like my chowder to be more thick than runny. It was just too liquidy for me. And this recipe makes a TON of soup so I'm disappointed all those yummy ingredients went to waste.

Another great recipe from RKBCooks (thanks!). Both my kids and my husband love the corn chowder and I'm looking forward to leftovers. I subbed a few drops of Liquid Smoke in olive oil for the bacon fat (but had bacon for my meat-eaters to put on their soup). This was delicious!

Great chowder! Even my 5 year old will eat it. I subbed sour cream for the half and half.

This is good for a lunch with garlic bread and a salad made with poppy seed dressing - this freezes well also.
