EXTREMELY AMAZING CHOWDER!!!!!!!, Member mmttbb10

I made this corn chowder for a school project, and almost everybody who tried it wanted my recipe! Everybody else (the people who didn't ask for the recipe) said it was the best chowder ever, and a couple of people in my class said that I should be a chef. I think it is a good idea to add some spices. I added rosemary and thyme. I also used half creamed corn and half frozen corn so I could show there was corn actually in it, and I had a super huge onion so I used half of it. It also fits well into a normal crock pot, so you can warm it up easily.
