I am not one for writing my own recipes often... I tend to make families recipes, or I will adapt something from a cookbook or magazine... This is a recipe I came up with recently when I had a craving for Corn Chowder. I looked up a few recipes, but I kept thinking about the way my mom would have made it... and I threw this recipe together. When I told my mom about it later, she said it was really close to her scalloped corn recipe... I guess watching her cooking while growing up has made an impression on me. So, here goes the recipe...
- 1 stick butter
- 1 bell pepper (I used red for color)
- 2 more peppers, or chilies (I used Anaheim)
- 1 bunch green onions, sliced
- 3 cups water
- 2 large potatoes, cubed
- 1/2 - 1 teaspoon dried thyme (I used 1 teaspoon, but 1/2 might be enough for some people)
- salt and pepper to taste
- 2 cans (15 ounces each) canned creamed corn
- 1 can (15 ounce) evaporated milk
- Melt butter in large pot... when melted, add all of the peppers and onions and sautee until softened.
- Stir in water, potatoes, thyme, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer until potatoes are tender.
- Stir in remaining ingredients and heat until warmed through. Enjoy!
