Mr. Food: Potato Corn Soup

What You’ll Need

  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 2 potatoes, peeled and cut into small cubes
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup half-and-half
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1/4 cup diced cooked ham
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

What to Do

  1. In a soup pot over high heat, combine chicken broth, potatoes, and onion; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium, cover, and cook 10 to 12 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan over low heat, melt butter; whisk in flour until smooth.
  3. Whisk flour mixture into soup until thickened. Slowly stir in remaining ingredients, mixing well. Simmer 5 to 10 minutes, or until heated through.

Notes

The next time you make Potato Corn Soup, try serving it with some crusty bread (for soaking up every bit of the soup!) and a healthy green salad. We bet your whole gang will love this change-of-pace dinner.
