How to make Potato Corn Chowder
Add salt, freshly cracked pepper and flour and mix well. The flour and the onion garlic mix will turn into a coarse paste.
Next, add the chopped potatoes and the corn.
Add the broth, milk and Italian seasonings and whisk it well. Increase the heat and bring it to a boil. After the chowder boils, reduce the heat and let it simmer for 20 to 25 minutes, or till the potatoes are cooked through and tender.
For extra creaminess, add heavy cream and/or shredded cheese and give a good mix. Serve hot with a garnish of chopped parsley or chives.
To make it heartier, stir in a cup or two of roasted chicken breasts, or crabmeat while the chowder is simmering. Chopped up cooked bacon can also be added as a garnish.
