I am eating my second huge bowl right now. The first was without cheese. This was with. It's good both ways. I used black pepper just because I was in a major hurry and didn't take time to dig out my white paper in the cabinet. I did not know when the cheese was supposed to be added, so I just put it in after I was done cooking it. Thanks for an easy peasy meal.

I used 2 cups skim milk, 1 can of evaporated milk along with 1 can of cream style corn and 1 can of corn kernals and the chowder tasted great! The ham added a lot to the flavor of the chowder. Really liked this one! Update - This time around I used just the cream style corn and it was just as good. Always delicious and a must have during the cold winter months!
