Corn-Potato Chowder

Corn-Potato chowder, mildly sweet and creamy soup that is apt as a light lunch or dinner with a salad or garlic/herb Flavor bread

We had this for the first time in Atlanta bread in Atlanta airport and immediately thought I should try this at home sometime. The ingredients in it looked simple.. Potato, Corn and butter flavor. I have a cream of mushroom soup that I will post sometime soon and the soup base tasted same except one had a strong corn flavor and other sautéed mushroom. When I searched online, I learned this is made with fish/chicken stock and clams (seafood). There were many corn-potato chowder recipe online but 1 and 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese for 4 servings of soup was not a type of soup we prefer so all I had to do was concoct a soup with the one I had in mind.

So here is what I did and it turned into a great soup!
