Sometimes you’ve just gotta say “what the heck” to your diet..and THIS is one of those times!

This chowder is a must-make for the big, baggy sweater winter season..because, it’s comforting and delicious.. but it’s not exactly the lowest calorie meal to indulge in, and one bowl is never enough!
But it’s so worth it!  🙂

It’s so easy, makes a ton and freezes well, so you can make a big batch, and enjoy it all winter!

Here’s how!

What you’ll need:
8oz. Bacon, chopped
1/4 cup Olive Oil
6 cups chopped yellow onions (4 lg. onions)
4 tbsp. Butter (1/2 stick)
1/2 cup Flour
S&P to taste
1/2 tsp. ground Turmeric
12 cups Chicken Stock (3 boxes)
6 medium diced potatoes, unpeeled.. (about 2lbs).
10 cups corn kernels, fresh (10 ears) or frozen (3 lbs.) …If possible, use fresh!
1 cup half-and-half
1 cup Sour Cream
1/2 lb. Sharp Cheddar

In a large stockpot over medium heat, crisp up the bacon and remove.
Add the onions and butter, and cook for about 10 minutes, until the onions are translucent.
Stir in the flour, s&p, and turmeric and cook for 3 minutes.  Add the chicken stock, and the potatoes..bring to a boil and simmer uncovered for 15 minutes, until the potatoes are tender.
Add the corn to the soup..If using fresh corn, cut the kernels off the cob first..duh! 🙂
Now add the half-and–half, sour cream and cheddar.  Cook for 5 more minutes..serve hot and garnish with bacon!!
This will become one of your favorite chowders of all time…it’s beyond awesome! 
So worth the calories  ~Enjoy!!?  🙂
*HINT*  Make sure and serve some good bread…it makes the best spoon!!
