Friday Night Bites--Corn Chowder

My cousin M is a fantastic cook (no surprise since her parents are amazing--she had good teachers!). This is her mom's corn chowder recipe that she then lightened. It is a great way to sneak in some vegetables and tastes delicious.

Seriously, you have to try this recipe. I promise you won't be disappointed.

M's Corn Chowder--Serves 4 but easily doubles and freezes well

Combine in saucepan:
1/2 cup of water
2 cups diced potatoes
1 cup pre-shredded carrots
1 cup chopped celery
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon pepper

Cover and simmer 20-30 minutes


1 cup creamed corn
1 cup canned corn, drained

Simmer 5 minutes

1 1/2 c skim milk
1 1/2 c 2% shredded cheddar

Stir until cheese melts but do not boil.

I am sure you could add crumbled bacon on top, or other garnishes. Sweet Pea Husband wants to try it with some crabmeat too.

Let me know what you think.
