Easy Cheesy Corn Chowder comin’ up!
You’ll start by cooking up some bacon in a large stockpot.
Once the bacon is nice and crispy, you’ll remove the bacon and set it aside.
To the hot stockpot, add in some buttah and let it melt.
****Your house will smell ah-mazing already at this point****
Once the butter is melted, dump in an entire bag of frozen potatoes with peppers and onions.
Cook ’em for about 8 minutes then add in 2 cans of sweet corn, 1 can of creamed corn, and chicken broth.
Bring this mixture to a boil, then boil until the potatoes are tender, about 2 minutes.
Reduce heat to low and stir in

I LOVE using Crystal Farms® Cheese in this Easy Cheesy Corn Chowder Recipe. Not only does all of their cheese TASTE super delicious, they’re all natural with few preservatives, tons of calcium, and they’re gluten free. Plus, I ♡ local brands and Crystal Farms is located just 30 minutes away in Lake Mills, Wisconsin, which I think is really cool.
Once the cheese has melted, you’ll season with salt, pepper, and a touch of cayenne.
The result is an ultra creamy, ultra cheesy soup loaded with potatoes, bacon, and corn… it truly is an amazingly simple soup that’s surprisingly loaded with flavor!
