    Amazing recipe!! I added a cup more each of stock and cream and added 2 pounds of jumbo lump crab meat. Never too much crab...I'm from Maryland. I also added cornstarch because I wanted a thicker chowder. It was amazing!

    Delicious recipe! I used white sweet potatoes since that's what I had on hand. Worked well playing with the sweetness of the corn. I added a tablespoon of corn starch to the half and half before adding. It just gave a slight creamier texture. Love the green chiles and bacon!

    I used four slices of bacon and it did make four teaspoons. I really liked this fresh tasting chowder with fresh corn. The potatoes took a little longer to cook than the recipe states. Garnish with some chives for a little punch.

    I forgot to add 1/2 tsp kosher salt and pepper to taste. You can also add peeled and deveined shrimp with the corn and bacon cook until the shrimp turn pink, about 5-7 mins. This is a delicious meal, just add a small green salad and some crusty bread. ENJOY1

    .For even more flavor I take the corn cobs and put them in the pot with the sauted onions and celery and the thyme sprigs add the chicken broth. Bring to a boil, then turn down to a simmer and cook for 30 minutes. Remove corn cobs and thyme sprigs add potatoes cook for 12-15 then add corn, bacon and half and half. Heat to low boil and cook for5 min. This is some of the best chowder ever.

    I like to add a little bit of sherry to my corn chowder recipes. It smoothes the flavor out and tastes delicious.

    seriously Carey, if you can't comment, then don't. People are on here to see what other people thought, not their snide comments.

    Are 4 teaspoons of bacons really going to render 2 tablespoons of bacon fat?
