“I don't remember where this recipe came from but we really enjoy a hot bowl of this filling chowder on cold days. It is real easy to put together, filling and yummy! Not to mention a great way to use up leftover ham!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a Dutch oven cook bacon over medium heat until crisp.
  2. Remove to paper towels to drain.
  3. In the drippings saute onion until tender.
  4. Stir in flour until blended.
  5. Gradually add milk and broth-bring to a boil.
  6. Cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened.
  7. Add the potatoes, corn and pepper.
  8. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered for 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
  9. Add cheese and ham; heat until cheese is melted.
  10. Stir in bacon.
  11. Normally I don't use the bacon or chicken broth because I make a broth from the ham bone that I am using. And only about a half can of the corn. I also add a cup of diced carrots.
