  • 6 slices of bacon (streaky), chopped
  • 8 green onions, chopped, whites and greens separated
  • 3 medium Yukon Gold or similar potatoes, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon mustard powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 cans whole kernel corn, drained
  • 1 can creamed corn*
  • 1 4 ounce can diced green chiles**
  • 2 cups cooked chicken, chopped or shredded
  • Cheddar cheese for garnish


  1. In a large pot or dutch oven over medium high heat, cook bacon until crispy. Remove bacon to a paper towel-lined plate.
  2. Add potatoes and whites of green onions to bacon fat. Cook, stirring occasionally for a couple of minutes until green onions are softened.
  3. Sprinkle the flour into the pan and stir constantly for a minute, coating the potatoes in the flour.
  4. Stir in the milk, chicken stock, and all of the seasonings. Bring the liquid to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for about 15 minutes or until the potatoes are soft.
  5. Stir in the corn, creamed corn, green chiles, and chicken. Taste for seasoning and adjust if necessary. Let this all simmer together for another five minutes or so.
  6. Dish up your chowder and top with reserved crispy bacon, the green tops of your green onions, and a sprinkling of sharp cheddar. Refrigerate the leftovers to get your through the week.



*If you can't get creamed corn where you live, add a can of regular corn to your food processor with a tablespoon of cream and blitz until creamy. 

** If you can't get canned chilis where you live, add a fresh green chili, chopped, to the pot along with the onion.
