Cheesy Corn Chowder Recipe

When it's cold outside, nothing's better than a warm, filling soup for dinner. This cheesy corn chowder is full of potatoes, carrots, corn and, of course, lots of cheese. It's sure to warm you up. It's easy to make and tastes so good. My favorite way to serve this chowder is in a homemade bread bowl.



Cheesy Corn Chowder Recipe


This is another one of Grandma's recipes. And it's one that we make often in the cold winter months. It calls for simple ingredients that I always have on hand.

Sometimes to switch it up a bit I add a can of minced clams with the juice. My meat-loving husband prefers it that way.


My kids gobble this up. I've had to start making larger batches to fill all their tummies.

Cheesy Corn Chowder

Serves 4-6

2 c. water
2 c. chopped potatoes
1/2 c. chopped carrots
1/4 c. chopped onion
1 1/2 t. salt
1/4 t. pepper

Cook until tender then set aside.

1/4 c. melted butter
1/4 c. flour
2 c. milk
1 1/2 c. grated cheese
1 can corn

In large soup pot melt butter, then add flour. Cook a minute or two. Add milk and stir until smooth and thickened.

Add the cooked veggies with the cooking water and the cheese. Add the corn. Drain the corn first for a thick chowder, or add the juice for a thinner chowder. Simmer until heated through.


Note 1-17-19: Originally published 1-24-13. It's still a favorite  go-to meal at our house.

What is your go-to soup during winter? If you love chowder, consider trying this potato/ham chowder.
