Corn and Bean Chowder

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by ladypit

This is a nice cold weather recipe. Originally found in the "More With Less" cookbook, I modified it a bit to make it a little healthier. You can add cooked potatoes if you would like a thicker soup, but we didn't feel it needed it. The original recipe called for fresh or frozen corn. I used frozen. I wouldn't attempt to use canned corn here, but my husband hates canned corn and won't eat anything that it is in. So take that on advisement!
