cheesy ham and corn chowder


It's finally cold here!  I'm soooooo excited.  I've been able to bust out my sweaters, and Miss Pebbles caught her first glimpse of snow. :)


When the weather gets cold, there's nothing I like better than a bowl of soup.  This one is a real winner.  It's cheesy, creamy, warm, hearty, filling, and simply delicious.  It's also very economical and takes less than half an hour to prepare.  What could be better?


Serve it up in a bread bowl to stretch your servings and give it a rustic touch. 


Cheesy Ham and Corn Chowder
2 T. butter
1/2 onion, chopped
2 T. flour
2 cups chicken broth
2 medium potatoes, peeled and sliced
1/2 t. sage
1/4 t. pepper
1 cup cooked ham, cubed
1 1/2 cup milk
10 oz. package frozen corn
8 oz. Velveeta cheese, cubed

Melt butter in a large saucepan; stir in onion and cook over medium heat until tender.  Stir in flour until blended.  Add chicken broth, potatoes, sage, and pepper; stir to blend.  Cover and cook until potatoes are tender, about 15-20 minutes.  Add remaining ingredients; cook and stir until heated through, about 8-10 minutes.  Serves 4.
