Easy Corn Chowder
On rainy days like today, I like a good thick chowder. Every time I make this particular chowder, it changes a little. It is a very versatile recipe that allows you to add pretty much anything you want!
What you need:
1 medium onion, chopped
1 can chicken broth
2 cups water
2 large potatoes (I use three white potatoes for a family of 4)
1 cup milk (divided)
2 cups sweet corn
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 cup flower
Tomato and/or bacon bits for garnish
First chop up the onion and potato.
Begin to cook the onion in the heated pot.
Add the potatoes. Let them simmer for a minute while you measure out the broth and water.
Add a can of chicken broth and 2 cups of water, bring to a boil.
When it is boiling, reduce heat to a simmer, cover and cook for 15 minutes
Add 3/4 cup milk and corn. Quickly whisk the flour in the remaining milk and slowly add to the mixture.
Slowly bring the soup back to a boil, while stirring.
Cook and stir for about 2 minutes or until the soup is thickened.
