Comfort in a Cup


Tomorrow is the first day of Spring.  Easter will be here very soon. And, what to do with the leftover ham?  Make soup. 


CORN CHOWDER


2 tbsp. butter
6 oz. diced ham
1 large onion, chopped
3 tbsp. flour
32 oz. Chicken Stock
1 large russet potato, peeled and diced
(about 2-1/2 cups)
1 cup evaporated skim milk
(or half-and-half)
4 cups fresh or frozen corn
1 red bell pepper, seeded and diced
3 green onions, sliced
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tbsp. chopped basil or cilantro

Melt butter in a medium skillet.  Add ham and onions; cook for 5 minutes.  Stir in flour and cook for 1 minute.  Add stock and potatoes; cook over medium-low heat for 15 minutes.  Add milk, corn, red peppers and green onions;  cook for 10 minutes more.  Season to taste with salt and pepper and garish with basil or cilantro. 
I serve this soup with a tossed green salad and crusty bread with butter. Ah!!!!!
Hope you enjoy the soup.
