Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    3 1/2 cups peeled and diced potatoes
    1/3 cup diced celery
    1/3 cup finely chopped onion
    1/2 cup carrot, diced (optional)
    1 cup diced cooked ham (buy a ham steak in the deli section)
    3 1/4 chicken broth
    1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
    1 teaspoon ground white or black pepper, or to taste
    5 tablespoons butter
    5 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    2 cups milk
    1 cup canned corn

Directions

1.Combine the potatoes, celery, onion, carrot, ham and chicken broth in a stockpot. Bring to a boil, then cook over medium heat until potatoes are tender, about 10 to 15 minutes. Stir in the salt and pepper.

2.In a separate saucepan, melt butter over medium-low heat. Whisk in flour with a fork, and cook, stirring constantly until thick, about 1 minute. Slowly stir in milk so that lumps don't form and until all of the milk has been added. Continue stirring over medium-low heat until thick, 4 to 5 minutes.

3.Stir the milk mixture into the stockpot, and cook soup until heated through. Add corn and heat through.

4. Top with cheddar cheese, chives, and bacon if desired. Serve immediately.

5. Makes 6 servings
