Autumn Chowder

Autumn Chowder
6 servings

1 tablespoon oil
1 onion, chopped
4 potatoes, peeled and cubed
12 baby carrots, quartered
3 cups chicken broth
2 cups milk
1 bag frozen corn
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon flour
4 tablespoons water
4 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded
6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled

In a large saucepan, saute onion in oil until tender. Add the potato, carrot, and chicken broth. 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, salt and pepper. Cook 5 minutes longer. Combine the flour and 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. Stir in bacon. Serve up big bowls and enjoy!

Yum...yum...yum...and oh did I say yum?! :-)

Now that does sound good! We have had a pouring rain all evening since about 4pm. That's a good thing, we are needing rain. But it does chill you, this would sure fix me up.

Mmmm, just the perfect meal for this time of year! The only thing that would make it better would be a nice homemade biscuit smothered in butter!

I am trying to get your potato soup recipe but it doesn't come up. The Autumn chowder does instead. Would really like to have the recipe. You have a lot of good recipes! Thanks.
