Total Basset Case: Corn, Bacon and Potato Chowder

Dec 20, 2011

Corn, Bacon and Potato Chowder

I have been obsessed with making (and eating) soups and chowders lately.
Something about the warmness in my belly is very addicting.
I recently pinned this recipe from Weight Watchers and whipped it up the other night. 
I put my own little spin on the recipe and added turkey bacon, extra corn and peppers.

Corn, Bacon, and Potato Chowder
(adapted from weightwatchers.com)

2 medium baking potoates
1/2 cup uncooked celery, chopped
1/4 cup uncooked onion (I used a red onion)
1 bag frozen corn (or 2 cans)
1 can corn and peppers
1 can creamed corn
1 cup green or red pepper, diced
4 oz uncooked Canadian-style bacon, diced   
4 slices turkey bacon
2 cups fat free milk
S&P to taste

1. Wrap potatoes in plastic wrap, poke with a fork and microwave
2. Coat a large saucepan with cooking spray. Add celery, onion, corns and red pepper; sauté over medium-high heat for at least 10 minutes. 
 3. Cook/brown bacons (separately) in sauce pan and dice.
4. Stir bacons and milk into saucepan.  Stir in mashed potatoes and mix well.  Season with S&P to taste. Let simmer about 15 minutes (or more).
5. Enjoy! 

 Low fat and delicious!
Perfect for chilly nights!
