    Nothing says fall more than soup. Hearty, soul warming, stick-to-your-ribs soup. Soup like Corn Chowder (said with a thick Boston accent, because chowder should always be said with a long chow…).

    Corn chowder is a relatively simple soup and really doesn’t take much time on the stove top, so why do you need to bring the Instant Pot into the game? I’ll tell you why: FLAVOR.

    Making otherwise easy recipes in the Instant Pot instantly infuses the whole dish with flavor. Putting recipes under pressure gives it the same taste as simmer for hours upon hours in just minutes.

    So while a quick corn chowder can be seasoned to greatness, it will never taste as good as the 8 hour chowder that married all the flavors landing in layers of sophistication.

    The only pitfall to making soup in the Instant Pot is that the liquids don’t get to reduce and thicken. Adding potato helps thicken the soup and add body. In my opinion, potato corn chowder is the best corn chowder anyway.

    Cornstarch also assists in thickening without having to add so much cream that we would all have a belly ache. If you don’t like cornstarch, you can substitute with arrowroot.

    My biggest trick for making any soup is to brighten it with an acid at the very end, right before serving. My main go-tos are lemon juice and vinegar. For Instant Pot Corn Chowder, I used white vinegar.

    Just a teaspoon goes a long way and changes the whole profile from good to HOLY MOO COWS! Make sure to add the vinegar at the very end. When soups refrigerate, they become muted and will need to be re-seasoned with salt and vinegar after reheating.

    This easy Corn Chowder recipe is going to become a weeknight staple in my house this fall. As I mentioned, I love hearty, warming soups in the cool weather and this Instant Pot potato corn chowder is just the recipe for the days I don’t have time to let a soup simmer all day. If you’re looking for a quick and easy soup recipe, this corn chowder soup is it!
