Autumn Chowder

This delicious chowder is not only good in Autumn, but also any time of year when the weather is chilly and you just want to wrap your hands around a warm bowl of soup.   


Ingredients

4 bacon strips, diced
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 medium potatos
2 small carrots, chopped
1 cup water
1-1/2 teaspoons chicken bouillon granules 
**Can also use 1 cup chicken broth in place of water and granules**
2 cups milk
1-1/3 cup frozen corn
1/4 teaspoon pepper
5 teaspoons all-purpose flour
4 tablespoons cold water

Directions 

In a large saucepan, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp; remove to paper towels. 
Drain, reserving 1 teaspoon drippings. 
In the drippings, saute onion until tender. 
Add the potato, carrot, water and bouillon. Bring to a boil. 
Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until the vegetables are almost tender.
Stir in the milk, corn and pepper. Cook 5 minutes longer. 
Combine the flour and cold water until smooth; gradually whisk into soup. 
Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. 
Remove from the heat; stir in cheese until melted. Sprinkle with bacon.


Happy munching!
