The BEST Cold Weather Chowder (soup) EVER...HIGHLY Recommend this.

Now that winter is in full swing, I thought I'd share my favorite winter comfort food recipe just in time for all those winter storms we may or may not get. No matter what, it's an amazingly easy and good recipe.

I toyed around with the recipe in the old Better Homes and Gardens recipe book and found ways to improve upon their recipe and developed my own chowder...My version is pretty much fool proof...With the BH&G recipe, the milk is one of the first ingredients that goes in and unfortunately 99% of the time I burned or scalded the milk which ruined the entire batch...My version saves that step until it's safe to go into the mix.

Potato Cheese & Corn Chowder

7 Medium Potatoes cut into 1/2 chunks
32 oz. Chicken Broth
1 cup Milk
2 cups Sharp Cheddar Cheese
1 16 oz. can Whole Kernel Corn
1/3 cup All Purpose Flour
1/2 Tbsp Minced Garlic
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Black Pepper

Boil potatoes until tender. Drain.
Reserve 1 cup potatoes and return remaining to sauce pan. Mash reserved potatoes then return to sauce pan.
Stir in broth, garlic, salt and pepper until boiling, reduce heat to simmer for 3 minutes.
In small bowl whisk milk and flour together until smooth, add to saucepan stirring constantly.
Stir until mix thickens and add cheese and corn until and stir until cheese melts.

Bacon and chopped scallions are great additions as garnish.

This is comfort food, not for a calorie counting day for sure.
