Simple Corn Chowder

Oh how wonderfully delicious and super simple this recipe was!! I love a quick soup that you can throw on the stove a half an hour before you want to eat and have it ready! I doubled this recipe and had enough for our family with leftovers and some to share with my grandparents!

Simple Corn Chowder
(recipe found at

1 cup low sodium chicken broth
2 cups peeled and diced potatoes
1 cup sliced carrots (about 12 baby carrots)
1 cup chopped celery (about 3 stalks)
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 cups frozen corn
1 cup cheddar cheese
1 1/2 cups milk

In a large saucepan combine broth, potatoes, carrots, celery, salt and pepper. Cover and bring to a simmer for 10 minutes. Add corn and simmer for 5 minutes more. Stir in 2/3 cup cheese and milk. Raise heat to medium and cook until cheese is melted and chowder is heated through, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to simmer and allow to cook until vegetables are cooked to your liking. Top with remaining cheese.

Serves: 4 1 cup servings
