It is a great meal when you are tired and busy and like me tonight have been cooking all day in preparation for a big Thanksgiving.
Here's all you need:
6-7 slices of bacon chopped
1 C. diced onion
1 C. diced celery
1 T. fresh or 1 t. dried parsley, optional
1 can of whole kernel corn drained
1 can of creamed corn
2 cans of condensed cream of potato soup
salt to taste
black pepper to taste
dash of celery salt
dash of dried red pepper flakes
1 1/2 C. milk
Fry the bacon in the bottom of a large heavy bottomed saucepan or kettle. When it is half way to being done add the onion and celery and continue cooking until light brown. Add all of the rest of the ingredients and stir together. Heat and serve with fresh crisp saltines or hot rolls.
In addition I want to say I have made this many times using a quart of left over potato soup or making a quart of fresh potato soup so it is quite versatile. I have also omitted the 2 cans of corn and the celery, added a can of clams and the juice of 1/2 a lemon and it is a great calm chowder.
