We love this delicious corn chowder on a chilly fall day. It’s starting to feel like fall in Oregon and I cannot wait! I woke up this morning to go on a walk and had to put on a jacket. I love this time of year and making lots of soup recipes for dinner.

This corn chowder is very filling and a recipe that the whole family will enjoy. If you’d like to add in more veggies, you can also add in some shredded carrots, bell peppers and chopped celery. I like to top my bowl of soup with extra bacon pieces, shredded cheese and green onions. Absolutely delicious and so comforting!

Quick tips for corn chowder recipe

  • I love using a mix of both plain corn and creamed corn as it gives the perfect texture, but you could definitely use one or the other if you prefer. If you have fresh corn on hand, you could always use that as well as frozen.

  • To add more veggies, try including shredded carrots, bell peppers or celery.
