Corn Chowder Recipe

First off I know corn chowder is traditionally more of a summer recipe; however, I know the last thing I want when it is 90 degrees and humid is a hot soup.  But now that it's a little cooler and much less humid this corn chowder was perfect!


First off you are just going to have to ignore the terrible pictures our kitchen in the house we are renting is terribly out of date and the lighting is bad.  Just know you have been warned! 

The first step of the process is to dice the potatoes, onion, and celery into small pieces.  Melt the butter into a large pot and add in your potatoes since these will take the longest to cook.  A few minutes later toss in the onion and celery.  And a few minutes later pour in the two bags of frozen corn along with the chili powder, thyme, parsley, and garlic.  Cook this mixture for about ten minutes or until the vegetables are tender.  


After this add in the flour and stir to coat all the vegetables.  Allow this to cook for a couple minutes so you won't taste raw flour in the finished soup.  


Finally pour in the chicken broth and milk bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer.  Simmer for 20 minutes to thicken and allow all the flavors to come together.  Salt and pepper to taste.  Finally serve with your favorite sandwich.  The one I made was a grilled cheese with big slices of tomato.
