Clipped from a newspaper food section, but I don't remember which one anymore. The sweet potato topping caught my eye, and I thought it might be good to make. Posted here so I wouldn't lose the recipe.
This is a chowder that uses ingredients that I almost always have on hand, so it is quick and easy to throw together before work, and come home to on a nice fall evening. Relatively easy to double as well for extra large families or get togethers.
This is the 2005 runner-up prize winning recipe from the aidells.com website. Aidells' chicken, turkey and pork sausages should be available in your local grocery store - any flavored sausage will work. I added more curry and cumin and cayenne - we like it spicy! This was a cinch to make and it was delicious!
When i first saw this recipe I thought it looked interesting but I never thought I would adore it as much as I do. It is adapted from WiGal's Creamed Cabbage Soup. I had to make it a little healthier to fit into my Weight Watchers Life Style. On Core it is 0 points if you are sure to use very lean ham.
The thing that makes Cincinnatians' recipes different from the way you and I would start cooking the chili is not only the spices, but also the method. They do not start by browning the meat, but by boiling it!
This is the only way I make corn chowder. It doesn't leave that awful skum around the pot like cooking it on the stove does, that you almost have to sandblast off. The bacon gives a wonderful flavour, and the two kinds of corn a nice consistency.
One of my uncles and aunts was here for what is likely to be his last visit (he has cancer and is not doing well), so I wanted to prepare a really nice dinner. The original recipe was for 4, but I modified slightly, and doubled to serve 8, serving as the first course. It originated in one of my diabetic cookbooks (uncle and aunt are both diabetic), but was a major hit with the non-diabetics as well as the diabetics. Everyone was disappointed there was none left (for thirds).
