Summer Corn Chowder




What food defines summer days better than fresh corn on the cob? If you can bear to cut the corn off and use it for a recipe, then I highly recommend this chowder I found at Amy Bites, here.

I made a few adjustments (doubled the recipe, replaced the bell peppers with pimientos because I had a jar in the pantry that needed using, and added about a cup of cream).

I also strongly suggest trying it garnished with sliced smoked sausage, browned until crisp. The saltiness/smokiness adds another dimension not to be missed.

Also, it only gets better in the fridge and my kids gobbled it up. Win!

  1. Mmmm. So yummy, last time I made corn chowder I topped it with bacon. Got the same crispy saltiness as you probably did with the sausage. Yum

  2. You just reminded me that I made a corn chowder a few summers ago and since then forgot about it. Not sure why as corn chowder is so delicious! Thanks for the referral and the tip on adding the sausage. Makes me hungry just looking at it!

  3. This looks so delicious! I love fresh corn.
