Step 1

Cut bacon strips in to thin slices and fry in a sauté pan until browned. Drain bacon and oil on to a plate lined with a couple of paper towels. In the same pan add onions and drained bacon. Cook until onions are soft. Add black pepper and flour and cook for about 2 minutes to bring out the flavor of the pepper and to cook out the raw flavor of the flour. Add ham and give it a little stir. Set aside.

Place potatoes in a pot and cover with water. Add salt and bring to a boil. Cook for 5 minutes in boiling water. Add bacon mixture and bring back to a boil. Add both cans of corn, chicken broth and bring back to a boil. Add milk and let heat to just a boil. Remove from heat and let sit for about 10 minutes before serving.
