Ham and Corn Chowder

Loaded with ham, potatoes, bacon, and corn, this chowder is a hearty soup that's cozy and comforting. We like to use leftover ham, but the packages of diced ham also work well here.

  • 6 slices bacon chopped
  • 1 medium onion diced
  • 2 medium carrots diced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 large potatoes peeled and diced
  • 5 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups diced ham
  • 2 cups frozen sweet corn
  • 14 ounces canned cannellini beans
  • 1 tablespoon Old Bay seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cracked pepper
  • 1 ½ cups milk
  • 3 tablespoons flour


  • Heat a large dutch oven over medium heat. Add the bacon and onion and cook until onions are translucent, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the carrots and garlic and cook for 2 more minutes.
  • Add the potatoes and chicken broth and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes.
  • Add the ham, corn, beans, and seasonings to the pot and simmer for 10 more minutes or until the potatoes are tender.
  • Whisk together the milk and flour and pour into the pot of soup. Increase heat to a rolling boil and cook, stirring constantly, until the soup has thickened to your liking.
  • Serve with crumbled bacon and green onions, if desired.



This soup is great with leftover ham, but the packages of diced ham work great as well.
