Cheesy Chowder

You’ll Need

  • 2 cups diced potato (about 4 small potatoes)
  • ½ cup sliced carrots
  • ½ cup chopped celery
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp fresh ground pepper
  • 2 cups chicken/veggie stock or water
  • ¼ cup butter
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 cups shredded aged cheddar
  • ½ tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • Optional: parsley for garnish

Prep and Cook

  • Bring the stock/water to a boil in a medium saucepan and add the potatoes, carrots, celery, salt and pepper. Lower heat, cover and simmer until the potatoes are fork tender. Add the corn and cook for 2 more minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a separate saucepan, melt the butter. Add the flour and stir to combine, cooking for 2 minutes. Add the milk and bring to a boil. The sauce should be thick at this point. Remove from the heat, add the cheese and stir until the cheese has melted.
  • Pour the cheese sauce into the vegetable mixture and stir well. Check seasoning and adjust if needed. Add more stock is the soup base is too thick. Serve warm.
