1. In a saucepan, pan fry bacon until cooked crisp. Remove from pan and place on a paper towel to drain. Keep about 2 Tbs. bacon fat in the pan and save the rest for future cooking!
2. To the bacon fat, add the onion and peppers, sautéing until soft (about 5-6 minutes).
3. Add the chicken broth and potatoes and bring to a simmer. Simmer covered for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are almost completely cooked.
4. Add corn, coconut milk, parsley, salt & pepper and cook for another 5-6 minutes. *If you like your chowder super thick, mix 1 Tbs. cornstarch or arrowroot starch in a little extra coconut milk, whisk, and then add to the chowder pot, stirring for a few more minutes until thickened.
5. Pour soup into bowls and top with lots of crumbled bacon!

    […] Bacon Corn Chowder | Coconut milk turns this soup into a thick, filling meal. […]

  • […] came across this recipe while browsing dairy-free recipes on Pinterest (of course!). I love corn chowder and I love bacon […]

  • J  says:

    I was just wondering what size of a can of chicken broth you used? It just seems like this wouldn’t be enough for a family of four with one can of broth. Did you keep the liquid from the corn, too?

    • Megan  says:

      I do drain the corn and use a 14 ounce can of chicken broth. This should be enough for four 1 cup servings (we serve ours with sandwiches). Double the recipe if you want this as a main course.
