I’m sure most of us have instant noodles stocked up, especially given the ‘Circuit Breaker’ period when we’re trying to be home chefs and cook a lot more, even if it’s with simple or instant ingredients.

How about transforming your favourite instant noodles into a corn chowder that takes less than 20 minutes and only requires a pot?

You can add extra seasoning and protein of your choice, so you can enjoy this chowder as a quick meal when you’re not feeling too hungry.

Unlike soup, a chowder has a much thicker consistency, so don’t be alarmed by how goopy it can get once it cools down. The pepperiness from the beef bacon gave it a nice punch of heat, so I advise you to get cooked meat that has the same potent flavour.

I didn’t have to add extra salt; it was well-seasoned already, all thanks to the beef bacon and instant noodle seasoning packets. I reckon this one-pot dish would be great for when you’re feeling lazy or when you’re in a squeeze for time in between work Zoom meetings.

Whatever the occasion is, this 15-minute recipe is fool-proof, simple, and uses the most basic ingredients, so there’s no need to worry about being unable to find it in the supermarket.
