Cooking Light- To capture the freshness of yellow jewel-like corn without the fuss of shucking ears or cutting kernels off the cob, use packages of frozen baby gold and white corn. This chowder is so wonderfully sweet with the frozen corn that our taste testers gave it our highest rating. Prep: 2 minutes; Cook: 14 minutes

Recipe Ingredients for Corn and Bacon Chowder

2 ounces bacon (2 slices)
1/2 cup celery, onion, and bell pepper mix (chopped)
4 cups corn (2 16 oz baby gold and white frozen pkgs- thawed and divided)
2 cups 1% low-fat milk, divided
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3/4 cup cheddar cheese (extra-sharp, shredded)
1 Freshly ground black pepper (optional)

Recipe Directions for Corn and Bacon Chowder

  1. Cook bacon in a Dutch oven over medium heat until crisp. Remove bacon from pan; crumble and set aside. Add celery mixture and 1 package corn to drippings in pan; sauté 5 minutes or until vegetables are tender.

  2. Place remaining 1 package corn and 1 cup milk in a blender, and process until smooth. Add pureed mixture to vegetables in pan; stir in remaining 1 cup milk, salt, black pepper, and cheese.
