I am so excited that Thanksgiving is around the corner. Time flies by so quickly, even though it can be harder to tell here in the Bay Area. We don't get all of the beautiful vivid fall foliage here, but the cooler days are a sure sign!
Today you are in for a special treat because I am sharing my grandmother's secret Corn Chowder with Creamed Corn recipe. In the old days, she made her corn chowder from canned cream of corn.
I love taking my Grandma's old recipes and creating gluten free versions. Gluten free corn chowder is a thick and creamy homemade soup that is sure to please!

I am not sure if it was the convenience or if that is just what she just had on-hand...but I will always remember this soup as our family's' comfort food. Del Monte® Fresh Cut Golden Sweet Corn Cream Style helps me bring her recipe to life.
I did jazz up her recipe a little bit because if you have been following my blog for a little while, you know I love spice.
Do you have a family recipe that brings back memories? This soup does it every time for me. When making this soup, quality matters. I love to use Del Monte Fresh Cut Golden Sweet Corn Cream Style. It ensures perfect soup every time.
