Curried Corn and Cheddar Chowder recipe

Yum! I give this Curried Corn and Cheddar Chowder recipe three thumbs up. I think it’s the perfect winter soup. This is the kind of soup you want to make at the beach, wrap up in a blanket, sit on the patio and watch the waves. That’s what I think. It just makes you all warm and fuzzy inside.

It was relatively inexpensive! Without meat, soups can be super affordable -and with the flavors in this one, I didn’t miss the meat.

I should add – it only took me about 30 minutes to make – so take that Rachael Ray!


4 cups hot water

6 oz softened cream cheese

1 15 oz can creamed corn

4 teaspoons curry powder
Buy this in bulk at Winco – super affordable there!

1 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 cup chopped onion

1 1/2 pounds frozen corn kernels
I love Costco’s bags of organic frozen corn

2 stalks chopped celery

3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

3 tablespoons melted butter

1 cup cubed cheddar cheese, tossed and shaken in the bag with 2 Tablespoons flour


1.) In a soup pot – whip together the hot water and softened cream cheese.

2.) Add creamed corn, curry powder, black pepper and chopped onion. Heat to a slow boil.

3.) Add frozen corn kernels and chopped celery. Bring back to a slow boil, then reduce heat and simmer.

4.) Make a roux of 3 Tablespoons flour and 3 Tablespoons melted butter (basically melt the butter and whisk in flour). Stir into mixture.

5.) Gently stir in 1 cup cubed and floured cheddar cheese. Heat through until cheese melts.

6.) Ladle into soup bowls, garnish with grated cheese.

Serves 6-8 people. I think this would freeze really well if you made a double batch. You might have to add more hot water when you reheat.
