Corn and Potato Chowder--Simple, Flavorful, Versatile

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 15 mins

Working on making meals just using what I have in my kitchen. This one is a total winner! Any good cook knows how to tweak a recipe and this one is very forgiving. Exchange--raw onion, raw potato, shredded frozen potato, different herbs--whatever. But this concoction was what I had on hand; and it turned out well enough to post. I really feel the can of cheddar cheese soup (that I've had in my cupboard waiting for a use) made the difference. Hope you agree!

Made this soup for lunch today - nice and filling all by itself or served with a sandwich. Made as directed with the exception of the onion powder and parsley as I didn't have any. I only used 1/3 of the cayenne. I think I will add some mild green chilies to the leftovers, as well as, some additional spice such cumin, etc. There are many options for this delicious soup - we enjoyed it very much. Made for Fall PAC, 2012.

I used 1/2 large onion, so I left out the onion powder and dehydrated onion. I also used freshly grated potato. I reduced the garlic powder to 1/2 tsp and cayenne to 1/4 tsp. I was out of the cheddar soup so I used real cheddar cheese. Ok, I know I made a lot of substitutions, but this soup turned out great. My 17 year old came home from school and ate the entire pot! He asked if I would make it again tomorrow. That is a sure sign it is a good soup. Thanks for the recipe.
