"Leek = onion family. Used only white portions as another recipe suggested. Added bacon, omitted the butter and just used the bacon grease to work the vegetables. Used fat free half & half as someone else did. Soup turned out delicious, flavorful. Served with warmed french bread."
Heat butter and oil in a large Dutch oven over medium heat. Addleek, celery, and bell pepper; cook 4 minutes or until vegetables are tender,stirring frequently. Combine milk and flour in a small bowl, stirring with awhisk.
Slowly add milk mixture to pan, stirring constantly. Stir in broth,corn, potato, salt, and freshly ground black pepper; bring to a boil. Reduceheat, and simmer 30 minutes or until potato is tender. Stir in parsley andchives.

Fergcx1 1y agoI used 1/2 onion and two small leeks, 1 cup 1%milk and 1 cup 1/2 & 1/2, used one can corn and one can creamed corn, and added about two tsp's chili powder as one reviewer suggested. It turned out very flavorful. Would definately make again.My husband had two bowls. I put some crumbled bacon on top of his :)
neverleavinsd 1y agoI had to cook this a lot longer to ensure the potatoes were cooked. No leek, and not that much flavor. I really wanted to like this one but won't make again.
AESG 2y agoI used one can of creamed corn & one regular can. I topped with shredded cheddar cheese & bacon bits.

sarahburrough 3y agoI used a little less potato (1 1/2 lbs) and added about 1/2 tsp of chili powder. This recipe was REALLY good. My hubby had 3 dishes of it.
BoyceGirl 3y agoVery Good! I used 1 leek & 1 small onion!
mariposafria 3y agoI have made this multiple times and it never fails.
Szerenke 3y agoLoved this! The onion/leek thing also confused me, I put in a couple leeks and an onion, and added bacon - so good. Thanks
mitchellthompson 3y agoThe leek is missing from the ingredient list. Other than that, this is a new fav!
BaconATX 3y agoObservation: leeks and onion are not interchangeable. If this is indeed a 'leek' chowder, leeks ought to be one of the ingredients.
