Corn and Cheese Chowder

This week we tried a new recipe. It was really good!

Corn and Cheese Chowder

4tbs butter
1/2 onion, diced
3 slices bacon, diced
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 can corn, drained
1 can creamed corn
1/4c flour
3c chicken broth
2c half and half
2c shredded monterey jack or cheddar cheese
1/4c green onion

In a large pot, melt butter over medium-high heat. Cook onions for a few minutes, then add in bacon and diced bell peppers. Cook until soft. Add in corn and simmer a couple more minutes.

Sprinkle flour over mixture, and stir. Then add in broth and simmer for 3-4 minutes.

Reduce heat to low, then stir in half-and-half, and cover to thicken. Simmer about 15 minutes.

Stir in cheese and green onion. Once cheese is melted, salt and pepper to taste.

We didn't have any green onion so I left that out. It was very flavorful!!!
