Easy corn chowder!
The origins of the word appear to be French "chaudrée" being a thick fish soup (the word coming from chaudière meaning a pot).
Move forward to New England, and a variation of the word ... and you have the Newfoundlanders and Bretoners throwing the day's catch into a large pot along with other available foods. Chowder is the result!
Most chowders have cream of some sort in them. If you've trying to cut back on the calories or fat, you can always try a lower fat-content. For example, if a recipe calls for 18% cream, use 10% or 5%.
If, on the other hand, you LOVE the creaminess, you can 'up' the fat content as well. Adding some cream cheese is also a nice way to increase the creaminess.
For some, there is nothing that replaces the creaminess except using real cream. In that case, just serve smaller portions and REALLY enjoy!
