"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."

1/2 cup celery; finely chopped

I 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 :)

I 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.

I used one can of creamed corn & one regular can. I topped with shredded cheddar cheese & bacon bits.

I 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.

I have made this multiple times and it never fails.

Loved this! The onion/leek thing also confused me, I put in a couple leeks and an onion, and added bacon - so good. Thanks

The leek is missing from the ingredient list. Other than that, this is a new fav!

Observation: leeks and onion are not interchangeable. If this is indeed a 'leek' chowder, leeks ought to be one of the ingredients.
