Other than the dish's delicious flavor and consistency, corn chowder has an extra-special selling point: its longevity. Not only is it a tasty way to heat the body up on particularly chilly days, it also freezes beautifully. So, the next time you whip up a batch, try making double or triple the amount and freeze the leftovers. Not only will you save money on future meals, you'll also save time! Corn chowder recipes vary, but you can easily make a few servings with some frozen or fresh corn, chicken broth, potatoes, whipped cream, crumbled bacon and a few diced veggies -- like onion and bell peppers -- for taste.
