Creamy Corn Chowder

So it’s technically Fall and that means it’s time to eat soup!! Unfortunately it is still 85 degrees here in Small Town, Middle America. 🙁

But that hasn’t stopped me from eating soup for lunch… and dinner, for the past two days!

Today I am sharing with you a quick recipe for Creamy Corn Chowder.

It is so simple and only takes a few ingredients you probably already have on hand.  I managed to throw this chowder together in about 30 minutes including prep and cooking time.

I modified a recipe I found online somewhere.  I’m not even sure which recipe I ended up loosely following because I looked at so many, but this is my very own version.



A few things about the ingredients I used.  We recently have started eating as much organic food as I can possibly afford and have access to.  You may substitute any conventional ingredients you would like in place of anything I have listed as organic.  I hope to very soon have a series on why I hope you decide to also make the transition to organic foods, but I won’t go into that here!

Please feel free to make this recipe your own!  Add, take away, or tweak to your heart’s desire! This is a very versatile recipe and you can make substitutions as you see fit.
