Chicken and Corn Chowder



This recipe is from my friend, Heather. She posted a photo of this on her Facebook page, and I told her I needed the recipe ASAP! This is a super simple dish to make. It is basically a dump recipe. It only took a minute to make, and it just simmers on the stove for a about 30 minutes. Alternately, you could dump everything into the slow cooker and let it cook on low for about 4 hours.

Now, I did make a few small changes. I mean, what kind of food blogger would I be if I didn't change something? I added some spices, used frozen corn and added bacon. Bacon!!

This chowder was fabulous!! Be warned - this chowder does have some heat from the Rotel tomatoes. If you are sensitive to heat, use a can of Mild Rotel. If you aren't sure, start with Mild Rotel and see how you like it. We didn't think this was overly hot. It has a kick, but it isn't burn your mouth hot. Thanks so much to Heather for sharing her recipe! This will be a regular dish at our house this Fall/Winter.

    1. It is a Mexican type spice blend. I used Pampered Chef's, but McCormick also makes one. You can substitute taco seasoning.

  13. I just have a question about the consistency...do you think it would be possible to serve this over rice? My bf doesn't think of soup as a meal :( but I think I can fool him if I could turn it in to some kind of rice bowl. Thoughts? I've never made a chowder before so I'm not sure about how thin/thick it should be. Thanks!

    1. You can certainly reduce the broth/milk a bit and stir in some cooked rice.
