Ok, this was good but this recipe isn't the corn chowder I love and often crave.
One, no self-respecting corn chowder wants to be shrouded by carrots and bell peppers. That's offensive to the corn, IMO, so I left those out when I made this chowder. But I wasn't thinking and I should have also left the onions out. Corn chowder is meant to be sweet! This chowder was good, but not sweet and it left a strong taste of onion in my mouth for hours! I would make my modified version of this recipe again, but would NOT put onions in.
Also, I didn't think was any chance the potatoes would cook in 4 hours time, so I boiled them for five minutes before adding them to the soup mixture.
