This is a recipe that I made and shared last year, but it is so good I had to share it again. We had a Christmas Party at our house on Thursday and we had some leftover ham. I thought it was a good idea to make some ham chowder. This is an easy recipe that will warm you up and tastes great.
This is the rundown of what you need.
4 large potatoes
2 TB butter
1/4 cup sliced green onion
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
2 cups of water
1 can of whole kernel corn
1/8 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp paprika
3 TB flour
2 cups milk
1 tsp salt
2 cups diced ham
Peel and dice potatoes. In large saucepan melt butter, add onions and green pepper. Cook until tender. Add potatoes, water and seasonings. Cover and simmer until potatoes are tender.
Make paste of flour 1/2 cup water. Add to potato mixture.
Add milk and cook until slightly thickened, stirring constantly. Stir in undrained corn and diced ham. Heat through.
My kids love this soup. They both had a second helping. I know you will love it. Let me know how you like it in the comments below.
