Corn and Bacon Chowder


Rate this recipe 0/5 (0 Votes)


  • 2 slices bacon, cut into 1/2 inch pieces (use turkey bacon if you want to cut back on calories)
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 2 1/2 cups chicken stock
  • 2 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 2 cups whole corn kernels
  • 1/4 cup light cream or half-and-half
  • salt to taste



Step 1

In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, cook the bacon until crisp. With a slotted spoon, transfer to a paper towel to drain.
Add the onion and bell pepper and saute until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the stock and the potatoes; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, partially covered, until the potatoes are almost tender, about 15 minutes. Stir in the corn; simmer 5 minutes longer. Season with salt. Remove from heat and cool slightly.
Transfer 2 cups of the soup to a food processor or blender; puree. Pour back into the saucepan; stir in the cream and heat to serving temperature. Serve, topped with the bacon pieces.
