Corn and Bacon Chowder


Hello hungry peoples,

I have always been a fan of a chowder, although I must admit I have always been a bit scared of the seafood variety. After spending a fortune making it how long will it last? Can you reheat it, or am I risking some very bad times?? As such I am obsessed with this soup. It is perfect chowder goodness in a bowl but super cheap and super easy to make, without the threat of death by food poisoning. It is also the perfect emergency meal as it only requires some potatoes, some canned corn and some bacon. Let’s get into it!
