Colorful Corn Chowder

 

 

On a rainy fall day like today, what could be better than a nice cup of chowda! A lot of people turn to using can soups because they think homemade soup is difficult, but it isn’t! Also canned soup contains a lot of salt and can loose nutritional value a homemade soup would have.  So skip the can and make a delicious pot of corn chowder today!

Ingredients:

  • 2 strips cooked bacon
  • 5/7 small colored potatoes (red, purple, whatever)
  • 1 onion
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 and 1/2 1/2 cup
  • 1/2 can corn
  • 1 tablespoon flour

How to:

  1. Begin by slowly cooking your chopped onions in 1 tablespoon oil.
  2. Just before they begin to turn translucent add in your chopped bacon and cook 5 minutes.
  3. Sprinkle in the flour and let it get a little bit of color before adding in your chopped raw potatoes (I was too lazy to peel them)
  4. Cover with water and cook covered at a rolling boil temperature add some salt.  Continue to cook until the potatoes begin to get tender.
  5. Once tender, reduce heat and add cream, salt and pepper.
  6. Now it is ready to enjoy!
