Creamy Corn Chowder


Oh this is one of those soups that is even better the next day, once all the flavors blend. I always make it the day before I plan on serving it.

Step 1

Cook bacon in large pot in oil until done but not crisp; remove bacon and sauté onion in bacon fat until soft. Add potatoes, 2 cups water, chicken broth, bacon, sugar and seasonings. Cover, simmer 20 minutes until tender. Blend flour with remaining water then stir into chowder. Bring to a boil stirring constantly over medium heat until mixture thickens; reduce heat and stir in corn with liquid, add half/half and cream corn. Stir well and heat thoroughly; season to taste with salt and pepper. If too thick add half/half or water. If too thin, thicken with cornstarch. Top each serving with additional crumbled bacon and fresh chives if you like.
