How to Make Corn Chowder

This corn chowder can be made 3 ways… so no matter what kitchen equipment you have, you can make it!

We like a chunky corn chowder, so we reserve some of the soup before blending it. Then we add the reserved chunky soup back in for a perfectly balanced creamed corn soup.

If you prefer a blended corn chowder potato soup, feel free to skip that step and blend it all up.

Nutrition and Calories in Corn Chowder

The nutrition and calories in corn chowder below are based off 1 serving (1 cup) of corn chowder with potatoes. Should you desire to make the chicken corn chowder, bacon corn chowder, or shrimp corn chowder, the calories will be slightly higher… but the protein will be higher too.

And yes, we use real bacon in recipes. We find that if you use the real stuff, but just less of it (just 1/2 a strip of bacon per person) you get all the flavor, without all the calories. Plus people are more likely to eat healthy when they get the flavors they really love. Should you prefer to use turkey bacon, that’s great too!

Important Note: As a reminder, at Lose Weight By Eating it is our goal to make you healthier, all-natural versions of your favorite recipes… not all will be “diet worthy” depending on the diet you are on. But they will be healthier versions to help curb your cravings.
