Here’s a recipe I published on my blog a couple of years ago – I found it while digging around looking for comfort food. With a quick stop at the grocery for a package of chopped ham and some nice crusty rolls I think this will satisfy everyone for supper tonight!
Potato, Corn, and Ham Chowder
6 or 7 medium potatoes, peeled and quartered
1 medium chopped onion
2 cups chicken stock
1 stick butter
2 tablespoons flour
1 cup chopped ham
3 cups milk
2 cans corn, drained
Tabasco, salt, and pepper to taste
Place potatoes and onion in pot with enough water to cover. Salt and pepper lightly. Boil until potatoes are soft, then drain and mash (leaving some chunks for texture). Melt butter in frying pan, add flour and ham and cook over low heat for a few minutes to blend flavors. Pour over potatoes. Add stock, milk, and corn and bring ALMOST to a boil. Let it sit on low heat for about an hour if possible to bring out the flavors. Add salt, pepper, and Tabasco at intervals as needed.
