Corn & Cheese Chowder




I got this recipe from the Pioneer Woman (she’s awesome!)!!!  I adapted a little (removed flour, used frozen corn)


4 Tablespoons (1/2 Stick) Butter
1 whole Onion, Chopped
3 slices Bacon, Cut Into Pieces
3 whole Bell Peppers, Finely Diced (red, Yellow, Orange)
5 ears Corn, Kernels Sliced Off (I used 1 bag of steamers frozen corn)
¼ cups Corn starch
3 cups Chicken Stock Or Broth
2 cups Half-and-half
1 cup (heaping) Grated Monterey Jack
1 cup (heaping) Pepper Jack
Sliced Green Onions for garnish



Preparation Instructions
In a large pot, melt butter over medium-high heat. Cook onions for a couple of minutes. Add bacon and cook for another minute or so, then add diced bell peppers and cook for a couple of minutes. Finally, add corn and cook for a minute.
Sprinkle flour evenly over the top and stir to combine. Pour in broth and stir well. Allow this to thicken for 3 or 4 minutes, then reduce heat to low. Stir in half-and-half, then cover and allow to simmer/thicken for 15 minutes or so.
Stir in cheeses. When cheese is melted and the soup is hot, check seasonings. Add salt and pepper as needed.
