It’s been cool in the morning and evening in AZ so I was craving my Bacon Corn and Potato Chowder. It’s the perfect comfort food. I made this version dairy free because our oldest daughter can’t eat dairy and I am giving her some of it to take home 🙂 Our whole family has been cutting back on dairy actually. I find my seasonal allergies are better when I don’t eat a lot of it, and since I cook everyone else gets to follow along 🙂
I love chowder when the weather is cool. It is so filling and warm. My Dad used to make a version of this when I was growing up. It stands out in my mind because my Mom did most of the cooking when I was younger, but I remember him making chowder. So, part of my love for it is nostalgic and part of it is just because it tastes so yummy.
If you are feeding a crowd, this is a great recipe to double and you can feed a lot of people. Pair it with a big green salad and or hot biscuits and voila you have a perfect meal. In fact, let me know when you are making it and I will come over. haha!
Here are a few things you might like to make this recipe. I love Amazon for its convenience and variety of products it sells. Seriously I might have a problem 🙂
