Corn Chowder...



Soup weather is right around the corner.  Or so they tell me.  It's still well over 100 degrees here and probably will be all week. But in anticipation for the cooler weather I wanted to share (again) my corn chowder recipe. I cannot wait to make it this fall.

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 (to taste)

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 Parmesancheese 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!
