Corn Chowder...


I thought I would join Life as Mom today for the Favorite Fall Food recipe swap. I need to get in the mood for fall which is a little tough as it will be 102 today! So I thought some food would help.
Corn Chowder
2 c. chicken broth or water
2 c. chopped potatoes
1/2 c. carrots chopped
1/2 c. celery chopped
1/4 c onion chopped
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
Bacon (about 6-8 strips- or to taste)
1/4 c. margarine or butter
1/4 c. flour
2 c. milk
1 c. Parmesan cheese
17 oz can cream style corn
17 oz can corn (drained)
Tabasco
Brown bacon and onion. Set aside. Add water/broth to veggies (minus corn). Add salt, pepper. Cover & simmer 10 min. Do not drain. Make white sauce w/ butter, flour & milk. Add Parmesan cheese stirring until melted. Mix white sauce with veggies. Add corn and bacon/onion mixture to vegetables. Heat, do not boil.. Spice it up with the Tabasco. You can also add cooked chicken to the chowder at the end.
Enjoy!

I love corn chowder. But I'm wondering if you live up north because when I moved to the south and started making it when I got married, no one had every heard of it. LOL. But my Florida native husband loves it!
