Corn Chowder

Just wanted to post this quick and easy recipe for Corn Chowder. I made it at the Council on Aging in January and everyone loved it. Since this winter has been so cold, I thought this would be a great one to share. I hope you enjoy it!

Corn Chowder

4 slices of bacon
1 small onion
4 tablespoons butter
4 tablespoons flour
2 cans of chicken stock
1 qt of half and half or milk (milk for lighter version)
1 can cream style corn
1 can corn
2 cubed and boiled potatoes
Salt and pepper to taste

Cube and boil the potatoes until tender. In a separate pan, brown bacon and onion. Melt butter and add flour. Cook until flour absorbed into the butter and bacon grease. Add chicken stock and both cans of corn. Bring to a boil and until thickened. Add half and half and reduce temperature to low. Heat to hot without boiling. Add salt and pepper to taste.

You can adjust the butter and flour to suit how thick you want the chowder and your can add additional corn, either canned, frozen or fresh.
