Apartment Living BlogFood & Entertaining › Warm up with some Homemade Corn Chowder

It’s that time of the year where we get to warm ourselves up with some homemade comfort food! Do you have any favorite comfort foods during the colder months? Maybe it’s Crock Pot Beef Stew or a big pot of Macaroni and Cheese. Isn’t it funny how food and smells can trigger memories? Some of my favorite memories are associated with dishes that I’ve come to love during the cooler temps. Big bowls of chili, apple crisp, and so much more! Chili is one comfort food I make every single year (multiple times a year). It’s a recipe my mom has passed down to me and it’s perfect on a cold fall or winter day.

So, as you can imagine, I love to pull out my crock pot and stock up on soups, chili, chowders and more for the cooler months. And better yet, I love how easy crock pot recipes can be! It’s a win-win.

How about we cook up a batch of Homemade Corn Chowder today? To be perfectly honest with you, I can’t remember having eaten it before, let alone making it. However, it’s become a new favorite of mine and my taste buds were doing a happy dance. This chowder is an orchestra of flavor, with a perfect balance of sweetness paired with the savory taste of baco — yum! Let’s do this.

1 tsp. seasoned salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 cup half-n-half creamer
1 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup butter

Serve with crispy French bread, and enjoy! It’s a delicious and hearty dish that will have your family coming back for more. Of course you can customize this corn chowder by adding and/or taking away an ingredient or two. I love this quote by Laiko Bahrs: “When baking, follow directions. When cooking, go by your own taste.” Make it as-is or make it your own, either way, I’m certain you’ll be glad you did. Enjoy!
