Corn Chowder

A few weeks back I was visiting Krystal & she made Corn Chowder.  I tasted a little bit and it was DELISH!!!!  She gave me the recipe rightthen.  I came home & made it right away.

(look you can still see the steam on the side of the bowl)

Mimi’s Cafe Corn Chowder
Adapted from Mimi’s Cafe


¼ cup butter, (½ stick)

6 tablespoons chopped onion

¾ cup diced celery

2½ cups water

2 cups cubed peeled red or russet potatoes, (½-inch)

2 cups frozen corn kernels, thawed

1 can creamed corn (14 ounce)

2 tablespoons sugar

2 teaspoons salt

1 dash of white pepper

3 tablespoons flour

3 cups half and half cream (or use heavy cream, whole milk)


In a medium Dutch oven over medium hat, melt the butter.

Add in the flour and using a wire whisk - whisk until smooth until a roux forms.

Add the onions and celery and sauté for 5 minutes until soft but not browned.

Add water, potatoes, corn kernels, creamed corn, sugar, salt and pepper. Whisk until smooth.

Cover and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 30 minutes.

Add half and half and simmer uncovered until soup has thickened to a creamy consistency, about 15 minutes.

Season to taste with additional salt & pepper if needed.
