Recipe: Corn Chowder

I am making all sorts of things with potatoes in them this week because The Boy decided that he doesn't like potatoes and that is not ok with us... enter Potato Week!

Corn Chowder

6 slices of bacon
3 potatoes, peeled and diced
2 stalks celery, diced
1 large onion, diced
1 large carrot, peeled and diced
2 large cans corn, drained
3 c vegetable or chicken broth
3 c water
1 can skim evaporated milk
3 Tbsp flour
Salt and pepper to taste

In a large soup pot, cook bacon until crispy.  Remove and drain on a paper towel.  In the bacon fat in the pan, add onions, carrots, and celery and and cook until softened.

Add potatoes, broth, and water and bring to a boil.  Reduce to a simmer and cook for about 20 minutes, or until potatoes are soft.

Stir in corn, evaporated milk, and flour. Cook for an additional 20 minutes to thicken. 

Using an immersion blender, puree about half  of the soup (or transfer to a blender, carefully puree, and return to pan.)

Serve and enjoy!
