I tried this good soup a couple of months ago and thought I had posted it, but I guess I didn't since I couldn't find it when I searched. I like to post recipes here so I can find them if I'm out shopping and forget the ingredients. So here goes:
Cheesy Potato Corn Chowder
3 c. (or more) potatoes, cubed
1 large onion, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
1/4 c. butter
1 14 oz. can chicken broth
1 4 oz, can chopped green chilies
1 can, or 2 c. frozen corn
2 c. Velveeta
Milk, or part 1/2 and 1/2 to desired consistency
Salt & pepper to taste
Melt butter in large pan. Cook onions & celery till softened. Add potatoes and chicken broth. Cook till potatoes are tender (15-20 minutes). With a fork mash some of the potatoes to help thicken the soup. Add green chilies, corn, milk, cheese and seasonings. Heat till cheese is melted. Ham can be added if you would rather not have a meatless soup.
I'm also thinking it might be good with ground beef. If you try it, let me know.
