Colorful Corn Chowder

Submitted by: JAMIEAHRENS


Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    2 T butter
    1 large onion, chopped
    1 green bell pepper, chopped
    1 red bell pepper, chopped
    2 carrots, chopped
    1 cup fresh mushrooms, chopped
    2-10 oz packages frozen corn
    1 1/2 cups dry potato flakes
    2 tsp salt
    1/4 tsp black pepper
    1/4 tsp ground cayenne
    3 cups water
    2 cups milk

Tips

Original recipe calls for adding 2 cups of half and half, I opted not to do this and it turned out tasting just fine and healthier. Also suggested in the original recipe, add cheese to serve.


Directions


In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium high heat. Cook onion, red and green bell peppers, and carrots until tender.

Stir in thawed corn, potato flakes, salt, ground peppers, and 3 cups water. Bring to boil. Reduce heat. Cover, and simmer for 10 minutes.

Stir in milk and half and half (optional). Warm only. Do not boil. Serve sprinkled with grated cheese.
