This Easy Corn Chowder is so simple and sure to knock your socks off. Filled with creamy corn and potatoes, and simmered to perfection!
It’s soup season year round in my house and I’m not sorry about it.
Do you all love soup as much as I do? I mean lets get real: they are SO easy, only one pot is required, it’s comforting, healthy, and always delicious. The list of why I love soup is never ending, but I will stop there.
This Chowder is easy as pie. Chop up those onions and garlic (a necessity of pretty much any recipe) and set those babies aside. Now peel your potatoes and cut them into 1 inch cubes. Heat some oil in a stock pot, throw in the onion, garlic, and potatoes and saute for 5-7 minutes.
Toss in those spices and give it a good stir. Once the spices are nice and fragrant, pour in the broth and flour mixture and bring to a rolling boil. Reduce the heat and let simmer for a good 40-45 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes or so.
Once the potatoes are soft and the soup has thickened up, stir in the cream. Season with more salt & pepper if necessary. Serve in bowls and top with fresh chives!! ENJOY!!Print
