About this recipe: A super-delicious, winter warming soup. Bacon is simmered with sweetcorn, potatoes and carrots in a chicken stock. It's wonderfully thick, creamy and satisfying.

Great thick winter soup. I had extra bacon so added extra everything, but went too crazy with the flour. Came out really well. This is a simple recipe to follow, but a hearty filling chowder. Will definitely do this again. - 03 Oct 2015
