Potato Corn Chowder

My bad for being a day late with this, but it’s a holiday weekend so you’ll forgive me, right? With all the rainy gray weather we’ve been having lately, B and I were just in the mood for a hearty bowl of soup. This recipe sounded like the perfect remedy. We made a couple minor tweaks and added some crumbled bacon on top and it was so yummy!

For this recipe you will need…

  2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  1 large leek, thinly sliced
  1 large red bell pepper, diced
  2 cups milk
  3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  3 cups vegetable broth
  2 cups roasted corn kernels (you can find these in the frozen section)
  2 pounds red potatoes, cubed
  1 1/2 teaspoons Tony Chachere’s (or any creole) seasoning
  3/4 teaspoon thyme
  3/4 teaspoon salt
  chopped fresh chives and crumbled bacon, for garnish

Melt butter in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add leeks and bell pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 5 minutes. Gradually whisk in flour, and cook for 1 minute. Then add milk, whisking constantly, until incorporated, about 1-2 minutes. Stir in vegetable broth, corn kernels, potatoes, creole seasoning, thyme and salt.

Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 20-30 minutes.

Serve immediately, garnished with chives and crumbled bacon.

Bacon and potatoes are two of my favorite foods, so I can definitely see this yummy soup becoming a weekly staple as it gets colder in New York! It seriously looks so amazing that I'd probably eat it even in the summer time (:

I really love corn chowder. It's one of those soups I'm happy to eat year round. I've never tried it with a bacon topping though… going to have to remember that for next time!

It does look delicious and perfect for Fall. Too bad we are re-living summer here again this week. Our weather is all over the place. Very unpredictable from one week to the next.
