Fall Recipe: Corn Chowder

As soon as fall hits I become a soup-aholic.  I crave soup when it starts to rain or get the least bit chilly.  If I avoided some of the fattier ones it would definitely be a good diet trick!  I found this recipe online and ended up tweaking it after a few tries to my own liking. This corn chowder recipe is one of my favorites because it is full of potatoes and bacon, yum!

Corn Chowder
1/2 pound bacon
1 medium white onion, diced
2 tablespoons butter
salt and pepper to taste
1 can corn, cream style
1 can whole kernel corn
4 cups chicken brother
2 cups milk
6 small red potatoes, cubed
2 tablespoons flour

1. Fry bacon in pan until done.  Set aside. When cool, crumble.
2. In a large pot stir in cream corn, kernel corn, butter, and broth.  Add potatoes.  Cook for 15 minutes.
3. Mix flour with a few teaspoons of water to form a paste.
4.  Add milk and flour paste to pot.  Simmer for 30 minutes.  Add salt, pepper and bacon.

Please note that this picture does NOT do it justice.  I just snapped it with my iPhone.  I PROMISE it tastes better than it looks here!
