Oprah's Corn Chowder

Recipe by Braunda

Low-fat, good chowder. We have had this several times hubby just loves it.

Hearty and wonderful tasting! I used water instead of chicken stock to make this vegetarian, and used green bell peppers and dried rosemary and basil, since that's all I had on hand. I crushed the dried herbs before adding them to the chowder, which really causes the flavours to burst out beautifully! I will definitely make this again; thanks Braunda!
