Soups! I love soup, the weather is starting to cool down and it is almost time for great soups.We were up to Russ and Kari's for a BBQ and I had brought corn on the cob, and I had a lot left over! Kari this is the Corn Chowder recipe.
3 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
2 stalks celery diced
1 cup onions diced
2 cups cubed cooked potatoes
12 oz corn or 1 1/2 to 2 cups corn cut off the cob.
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup cream
2 cups water
I like to add 1/2 tsp. thyme
1/3 cup flour
2 tbsp. flour
Cook bacon, saute onions and celery in the same pan. Cook potatoes in pressure cooker for about 5 minutes and release steam, or cook on the stove in water. Make rue with butter and flour. Combine all ingredients (except rue) and bring to boil. (Also I like to add the bacon after the chowder has thickened). Add rue until desired consistency is achieved (must stir/whisk constantly while adding rue at a hight heat). Add salt and pepper to taste. So good!
Here is another soup we love with corn and is so easy!
Southwestern Chunky Chicken Chili
1 can chicken breast or 1 or more cups of cut up cooked chicken.

2 cans diced tomatoes
1-2 Tbs. taco seasoning
3 tbsp. ranch dressing mix
