Ham is the choice for holiday meals for all of my kids.  While I love the traditional turkey dinner, there is power in numbers and my kids love ham.  I’m one of those people who can’t just cook a little, I always make a huge feast including a ham big enough to feed an additional 47 people along with our family of 6.  The great thing is that we usually have leftovers so I can make things like Cheesy Ham and Potato CasseroleEasy Ham and Potato Soup and this amazing Ham & Corn Chowder!

Soup is a wonderfully comforting and versatile meal whether it’s a slow cooker soup or a quick 20 Minute stove top version!  This recipe features loads of fresh corn and ham in a rich creamy broth to warm your belly from the inside out!

I like to top this with crumbled bacon and green onions but of course adding cheese is another amazing way to enjoy this recipe!  You can sprinkle a little on top when serving or stir in 1 1/2 cups of sharp cheddar after you have removed the soup from the heat.
