Potato Corn Chowder



Made with generous portions of potatoes and corn, this chowder is the perfect comfort food for a cold day.
Brrr! The first day of winter is still a few weeks away, but temperatures have already dropped. Warm up with a large bowl of this Potato Corn Chowder. As a starter or a meal on its own, this soup is a hearty, delicious dish that's a cinch to pull together.

As a busy mom, I'm always looking for meals that are both healthy and easy to make. And I love the simplicity of soups and chowders! They make quick, no-fail meals that the whole family can enjoy.

Using Simply Potatoes® for this recipe made an already easy meal even simpler. It took the prep work of scrubbing and dicing potatoes out of the equation. I may never scrub another potato again now that I know about these bags of prepped potatoes. Simply Potatoes® has hash browns, mashed potatoes, and diced potatoes that are all made from fresh potatoes. For the recipe I'm sharing today, you'll need two bags of the plain diced potatoes. No scrubbing, peeling, or chopping required! How's that for simple?
Ready to get started! Grab the ingredients below and let's prepare a warm delicious meal together.
