Ingredients

  • 4
    slices bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1
    medium onion, coarsely chopped (1/2 cup)
  • 1
    medium stalk celery, coarsely chopped (1/2 cup)
  • 6
    small red potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 2
    cups frozen corn
  • 1/4
    teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • 1
    carton (32 oz) Progresso™ chicken broth (4 cups)
  • 1/4
    cup Gold Medal™ Wondra® quick-mixing flour
  • 2
    cups half-and-half
  • 12
    oz frozen uncooked medium shrimp, peeled, deveined and tail shells removed (do not thaw)
  • 1/2
    teaspoon salt
  • 1/8
    teaspoon pepper

Steps

  • 1
    In 5- to 6-quart Dutch oven, cook bacon over medium-high heat 5 to 6 minutes, stirring frequently, until crisp. Stir in onion, celery, potatoes, frozen corn and thyme. Cook 5 to 6 minutes, stirring frequently, until onion and celery are softened.
  • 2
    With wire whisk, beat in broth and flour. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to medium; cover and cook about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until potatoes are tender and soup is slightly thickened.
  • 3
    Stir in half-and-half, shrimp, salt and pepper. Cover; cook 5 to 6 minutes, stirring occasionally, until shrimp are pink.

  • Make this cozy soup the star of a simple meal. A basket of hearty whole-grain or sourdough rolls or breadsticks is the only accompaniment needed.
  • Perk up the presentation of this chunky chowder by sprinkling each serving with chopped fresh thyme or parsley.
  • The term chowder is used to describe a thick, rich soup with chunks of food. The name comes from the French chaudière, or "cauldron."
