Ingredients

3
tablespoons butter or margarine
1
medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
1
small green bell pepper, chopped (1/2 cup)
3
tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 1/2
cups milk
3
cups diced cooked potatoes
1
cup frozen whole kernel corn (from 1-lb bag)
1
to 2 tablespoons fresh or canned chopped jalapeño chiles
3/4
teaspoon salt
1
teaspoon fresh or 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
1/2
cup shredded Swiss cheese (2 oz), if desired

Directions

  • 1 In 2-quart saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion and bell pepper; cook 3 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until crisp-tender.
  • 2 Stir in flour. Gradually add milk, stirring constantly, until mixture is boiling.
  • 3 Stir in remaining ingredients. Cook 5 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until corn is tender. Serve soup topped with cheese if desired.

Expert Tips

Jalapeño chiles add spunky flavor to this potato chowder, one that will satisfy even the most hearty appetites. However, if your family likes to take a walk on the mild side, just leave it out. This is great served with warm corn bread and cold milk.

Jalapeño-Tuna-Potato Chowder: Omit whole kernel corn. Add 1 can (6 ounces) white tuna in water, drained, with the remaining ingredients in step 3.
