    Mindi Bunch's Note:

    I got this wonderful recipe from one of my favorite cook books, New Dieter's Cookbook from Better Homes & Gardens. It's low in calories, but tastes like a guilty pleasure! When I make it, I double the broth, milk, and flour to make it more soupy and less chunky.

      A keeper! Made this last night for three of us and had leftovers for my DS's lunch today; he really enjoys corn chowders and this one was no exception. This was very quick and easy to put together; I did saute the onions and sweet peppers for 2-3 minutes before adding broth & corn, otherwise I'm not sure that they would have been tender - I also added an additional 8-10 ounces of water. Very filling and low on calories! I think if I had extra time I would throw half of the mixture into a food processor/blender and blend until smooth, then combine. Will be making again, thanks!
