Chowderheads Can Cook

 

You’ll be surprised at how quick you can put this chowder together.  Depending on how proficient you are with a can opener this is a 20 minute meal.  Really.

 Chicken Corn Chowder

½ c onion, chopped

1 tsp minced garlic (from the produce section, comes in a jar)

3 T butter

1 cup chicken broth (canned; or, bouillon or chicken base dissolved in water)

2 t ground cumin

2 cans white meat chicken, drained

2 cans cream-style corn

1 can (8 oz) mild chopped green chilies

2 c ½-and-½ cream (milk works; or equal parts 1/2-and-1/2 and milk)

2 c pre-shredded cheese (any combination of Mexican style, Monterey Jack, Cheddar)

½ can diced tomatoes in puree (fresh, when in season)

Saute onions and garlic in butter for a few minutes.  Add chicken broth, cumin and chicken.  Bring to a simmer.  Add corn, chilies, cream and cheese.  Stir over medium-low heat until cheese melts.  Stir in tomatoes.

Serve immediately with whole grain bread.

Makes about 8 hearty servings.  The leftovers are terrific.

(The guys I cook for say they don’t like soup.  But they often ask me to make this one.  It’s their favorite.  Go figure.)
