Corn Chowder with Bacon Original Recipe from The Palace Restaurant and Saloon at Prescott, Arizona Est. 1877


The Palace Restaurant and Saloon is about as close to an authentic Wild West saloon as you’re going to get, this Arizona watering hole claims Doc Holliday (involved in the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral) and the Earp brothers as early patrons. While a fire in 1900 engulfed the street known as “Whiskey Row” and destroyed the original building, loyal patrons reportedly rescued the hand-carved bar; you can still sidle on up to it today.

Prescott also has a place in western folklore with the fact that Virgil Earp, Wyatt Earp's older brother, lived in Prescott in 1879 and told him of the boom town in Tombstone, Arizona. It is also rumored that Doc Holliday spent some time in Prescott just before heading to Tombstone.

After several major fires in the early part of the century, downtown Prescott was rebuilt with brick. The central courthouse plaza, a lawn under huge old elm trees, is a gathering and meeting place. Cultural events and performances take place on many nights in the summer on the plaza.

Barry Goldwater, the 1964 Republican nominee for president, launched his presidential campaign from the steps of Prescott's Yavapai County Courthouse.
Nineteen members of the Granite Mountain Hotshots, part of the Prescott Fire Department, lost their lives Sunday, June 30, 2013 while battling the Yarnell Hill fire that ignited two days earlier south of Prescott.

Where the heck is Prescott, Arizona?

Prescott is a city in Yavapai County, Arizona, United States. According to the 2010 Census, the population of the city is 39,843.  The city is the county seat of Yavapai County.  In 1864 Prescott was designated as the capital of the Arizona Territory, replacing the temporary capital at Fort Whipple. The Territorial Capital was moved to Tucson in 1867. Prescott again became the Territorial Capital in 1877, until Phoenix became the capital in 1889.

Prescott served as capital of Arizona Territory until November 1, 1867, when the capital was moved to Tucson by act of the 4th Arizona Territorial Legislature. The capital was returned to Prescott in 1877 by the 9th Arizona Territorial Legislature. The capital was finally moved to Phoenix on February 4, 1889, by the 15th Arizona Territorial Legislature.

Why Wyatt Earp Likes Corn Chowder with Bacon?

Corn chowder is a complete meal, tasty and energy-giving. Corn chowder is a type of thick cream-based soup or chowder similar to New England clam chowder, with corn substituted for clams in the recipe. In addition to corn, it often contains other vegetables, such as potatoes. In many places in the United States, corn chowder is served as a vegetarian alternative to clam chowder.


Serves 4 to 6


8 ounces bacon, diced
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 small yellow or white onion, diced
3 to 4 stalks celery, chopped
2 cups all-purpose flour
7- 1⁄2 cups water
1⁄4 cup chicken base
1⁄4 cup dry white wine
1⁄4 tablespoon hot sauce
1⁄4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1⁄4 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon ground white pepper
1⁄4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
4- 3⁄4 cups heavy cream or half-and-half
1⁄2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
3 to 4 baking potatoes, peeled and diced
3 cups fresh or thawed frozen corn kernels (about 6 ears)
Milk for thinning, if desired


1) In a large stockpot, cook the bacon over medium-high heat and until it renders its fat, 6 to 8 minutes.

2) Add the garlic, onion, and celery and sauté until soft, about 10 minutes.

3) Gradually stir in the flour to make a roux, then gradually whisk in the water, chicken base, and wine.

4) Cook for 10 minutes.

5) Add the hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, thyme, white pepper, and nutmeg.

6) Lower the heat to a simmer and stir in the cream and butter. Continue to cook, stirring frequently, until thickened to a chowder consistency, about 12 minutes.

7) Add the potatoes and corn and cook for 15 to 20 minutes, until the potatoes are tender, stirring constantly.

8) Add the milk if the consistency is too thick. Serve hot.
