Corn Chowder

I don’t know if I’ve gone into this yet. I might have, but here I go again.

I LOVE soup. I love love love love love love it. Every year, I can’t wait until it gets cold again so that I can make lots and lots of soup. Of course, warm weather doesn’t stop me from whipping up a soup from time to time, but nothing beats hot soup on a cold day. And we are in soup weather once more. Happy day!

This soup is a new find this year, one of my golden Pinterest recipes. This corn chowder recipe comes from Recipe Lion (photo credit) and is originally a crock pot recipe, but works just as well on the stove top. I tweaked mine some according to my taste preferences and what I had on hand, but I cannot sing this soup’s praises enough. Neither can my husband. This soup easily surpassed my Creamy Tomato Basil Soup as his new favorite. It is so delicious.
