Fall is upon us!
Ok not quite yet really.
It was 77 here today which is not soup weather but...
But no worries about the warm day because it FREEZES well. :)
Cheesy, Ham, Corn, and Potato Chowder.
This is the best ever!
I am not just saying that.
I actually entered and won a soup making contest at my husband's work with this recipe.
So I will share the awesome yummy goodness with you!
Cheesy Ham and Potato chowder10 strips of Bacon diced
1, lg onion
1 cup diced carrots
3 cups milk
1 1/2 cup water
2 1/2 cups cubed potatoes
1 can drained corn
2t chicken bullion
pepper to taste
3 cups shredded cheese (sometimes I substitute low fat Velveeta but only around 1 cup then.)
2 cups cubed ham
Fry bacon in soup kettle. Remove the cooked bacon and set aside. In drippings saute the onion and carrots until tender. Stir in flour until blended. Gradually add milk and water. Bring to a boil, cook and stir for 2 min or until slightly thickened. Add potatoes, corn, bouillon and pepper. Reduce heat. simmer uncovered for 20 min or until potatoes are tender. Add cheese and ham. heat until cheese is melted. (add bacon on top if you wish).
If you freeze it, put the bacon in a separate baggie to use as a topping later to prevent soggy bacon.
