- 2 cups corn (canned or frozen)
- 1⁄4 cup butter
- 1⁄4 cup flour
- 2 cups milk
- 2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
- chopped fresh parsley
- Bring first 6 ingredients to a boil in a large pot. Cover, reduce heat and simmer 15-20 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Remove from heat, and stir in corn.
- Melt butter in a heavy saucepan over low heat; add flour, whisking until smooth. Cook 1 minute, whisking constantly, Grandually wisk in milk; cook over medium heat, whisking constantly, until mixture is thickened and bubbly. Add cheese, stirring until blended.

We loved this soup. It's absolutely delicious. Combine that with simple to prepare and it's a definite winner in my house.

This was delicious and the perfect meal for a snowy Saturday morning. Once the chopping was done it cooked quickly. It was a wonderful veggie chowder and would be equally good with leftover chicken or ham added. We'll be making this one again. Another great recipe Bobbie!!
