Corn Chowder

This soup recipe is quick and easy, and to spice it up or make it a more rounded meal, add diced ham or smoked chicken.

4-6 medium potatoes
1 medium onion chopped
1 cup celery chopped (optional)
1 cup carrot sliced (optional)
2 cans broth (chicken or vegetable)
2 cups frozen corn (use white as it's sweeter and more flavorful)
2 hard boiled eggs chopped
2 TBS butter
2 cups milk
1 TBS or more of flour
salt and pepper to taste

Cook potatoes, celery, and onion in broth until tender. Add corn, eggs, and butter, simmer 10 to 15 minutes. Add flour to milk, mix or shake in a sealed container, add to soup. Season, bring to a boil, simmer 15 minutes. Serve.

This recipe is from my niece's husband, Russ, who's a great cook. It's easy to make and full of flavor!

That looks good, I've never used hard-boiled eggs in chowder... hmmmm, gives me ideas.

i just made it for the first time...left out the hard boiled eggs out of laziness, but left in the juice from the corn and added some smoked chicken breast, and it turned out really nice.
