Souper Saturday 2

Cozy, huh?
This soup is one of my favorites. It's quick and easy to fix and it was perfect to make while I am out of town using DH's tiny motel kitchenette.

 Corn Chowder
You will need:
1 Cup of chopped bacon
1 medium onion-chopped
4 small potatoes (I use red)-chopped
2 Cups frozen cut corn
2 14 oz cans chicken broth
half and half or condensed milk to taste (1-2 Cups?)
(ignore DH's brown banana-that's what I've been doing LOL)
salt and pepper to taste







To make:
Saute the bacon until browned. Drain off all but about 2 Tbsp of the fat. Add chopped onions and saute until translucent. Add potatoes, corn, and chicken broth. Bring to a boil then simmer until potatoes are tender.
Oops- spilled the bag of corn into the pot. Extra corny!
Right before serving add seasonings and milk to taste. (Roasted red peppers make an awesome garnish.)

Side notes about this soup-
1) If you don't have potatoes and onions on hand, frozen potatoes O'brian are just as good.
2) This is a really good soup to make on camping trips. Just substitute shelf stable bacon, canned or dried corn, and dried milk and nothing will need to be kept cool.
