Hearty Potato and Corn Chowder

When the weather gets colder, we need comfort food! This Potato Corn Chowder is super easy and freezer friendly!

What’s the best food to eat when the weather starts getting colder?

Soup. Lots and lots of soup.

I love simmering soup on the stovetop with homemade bread baking in the oven. First, it makes the house smell wonderful. And second, it heats up the house so we don’t have to use the heat.

This Potato and Corn Chowder is a recipe I’ll make again over and over. It’s creamy, it’s cheesy, and it’s full of healthy carbs and fiber that’ll keep you full.

Is this chowder freezer friendly?

Yes! And you can cook the chowder ahead of time and freeze it straight into a gallon-sized freezer bag.

I’d recommend cooking it first before freezing, because I sauteed the onions and garlic and you wouldn’t really be able to do that if you froze it all beforehand.

What can you serve with this chowder?

Homemade bread for sure!! In fact, I served this with my amazing Jalapeno Cheese Bread and let me just say, it was AWESOME.

What is your favorite soup to eat when the weather gets colder? Leave me a comment and let me know- I’m always looking for more ideas!
