Roasted Corn Chowder

Rating: 5 stars
Roasted fresh corn and potato chowder is hard to beat on a chilly day! For a twist, add just a few ounces of smoked salmon and have an incredible British Columbia-inspired smoked salmon corn chowder. Had this in a little cafe on a dock in Vancouver, BC while waiting for a sea plane to take me to the outer west coast of Vancouver Island for a late season salmon fishing trip. I spent several years playing around with it to recreate it. Don't know if I matched theirs exactly, but I have come up with this basic roasted corn chowder recipe that turns into a great smoked salmon chowder, too.

Andouille Sausage and Corn Chowder

Rating: 4.69 stars
This is a slightly spicy, smoky, hearty corn chowder. The recipe was given to me by a dear friend many years ago and the original source is unknown. I have adapted it to suit my family's tastes. If you prefer a thicker chowder, you can stir in a can of creamed corn. Serve this with cornbread or a crusty French loaf for a lovely meal, enjoy!

Creamy Corn Soup

Rating: 4.44 stars
This soup is really easy to make, lower in fat than most cream soups, and delicious - especially if you are fighting off a cold! Try adding a chopped green chile pepper sauteed in the initial onion mixture or some small slices of chicken stirred in.

Classic Slow Cooker Corn Chowder

Rating: 4.51 stars

This is a classic corn chowder with a kick. My family likes a little spice, and this sure does it. Of course, you can make it without the spicy stuff and still get a really good chowder. Play with the flavors and create your own version.
