Corn Chowder

Corn Chowder is so easy, so hearty, and so delicious! I am not sure where I found the original recipe but I adapted it to fit my family’s tastes.  This is seriously the easiest chowder you will ever make!
1 large onion, chopped
1 potato, chopped and boiled slightly
¼ green bell pepper, chopped
¼ red bell pepper, chopped
1 can corn, drained (or fresh if you have it)
2 Tsp. Olive Oil
2 Tsp. Butter
3 Tsp. plain flour
2 cups Chicken Stock
¼ cup whipping cream
1 tsp. crushed chili flakes
1 tsp. thyme
2 tsp. black pepper
½ tsp. salt

In a medium pot, add the butter and olive oil and let heat. Add the chili flakes, thyme, onions, and peppers. Cook for 5-7 minutes until tender.

Add the flour and cook for 2-3 minutes until just golden brown.

Add the chicken stock and whisk to get out all lumps. Reduce heat and let the sauce thicken.

Add the corn and potatoes. Also add salt, black pepper, and whipping cream.

Let the chowder cook for 5 – 10 minutes making sure it doesn’t stick to the bottom. Taste and adjust seasoning as you like.
I usually serve my corn chowder with Cheddar Bay Biscuits similar to the ones at Red Lobster. Whatever you serve it with, it will be a hit with your family.  This would be a great treat on a cold wintery night where you should take the Thyme to Savor…
