This hearty corn chowder is simple, and makes use of any types of leftovers we have. Perfect one pot, one bowl meal for the cozy cold seasons
- 1 cup of ham
- 1 1/2 cups of corn (fresh or frozen)
- 1 can of low sodium cream of corn
- 2 medium potatoes (diced)
- 2 small onions (diced)
- 1 cup of milk (or cream)
- 1 cup of chicken stock
- 2 tbsp of butter
- bacon (as a optional garnish)
- Scrub the potatoes to get them clean and free of dirt
- Peel the potatoes
- Heat up a bit of oil and butter in a large pot. (The oil helps melt the butter at a slower rate without burning the butter from the heat)
- Add in the potatoes, onions and ham and cook it until the potatoes are slightly soft. This will take approximately 15 mins. (Don’t worry if the potatoes stick to the bottom of the pan, We will use the burnt bits as flavour bits during the de-glazing step next)
- Once the potatoes are soft, add in the mik and chicken stock to soften (de-glaze) the burnt bits stuck on the bottom of the pan. This is where a lot of the nutty flavour will come from ?
- Add in the cream of corn and mix it all together
- Simmer for another 15 mins until the potatoes are cooked and the liquid has reduced so it’s nice and thick for a hearty soup
- Cozy up to a bowl and enjoy!
This is a very versatile soup so substitution is encouraged!
No cream? use milk!
No stock? use water!
No ham? Use turkey, chicken, pork!
