This dairy-free bacon, and potato corn chowder is simple, affordable, and the perfect fall comfort dinner!
We like to joke in the south that Fall means nothing to us, because it’s still 90º in the middle of the day, we’re still wearing shorts and drinking cold sweet tea to keep cool.
But now that we’re in mid October, we’re starting to see glimpses of cooler weather peaking through to let us know that winter and the holiday season is on the way.
And one glimpse is really all I need to start making soup – call it chili, stew, chowder – whatever. You know what I mean!
A hearty, hot, flavor-packed dinner you can spoon into your mouth and savor.
And it doesn’t get much better than dairy-free bacon and potato corn chowder!
The sweetness of corn, mixed with the saltiness of bacon, and savory aroma of thyme, all combined with the hearty texture of potatoes and thick chicken broth.
So… fall or no fall, this chowder will hit the spot with you and your kids – and it’s easy to make to boot!
