"Delicious, very modifiable chowder. Serve this with a salad and rolls or beer bread. Yum! Consider this a basic recipe that can be modified according to specific tastes and needs. Carrots and celery can be added when cooking the potatoes if desired. Bacon would be delicious in this as well."

  1. Bring water, potatoes, onion, garlic, salt, and pepper to a boil in a large saucepan. Reduce heat, cover with a lid, and simmer until vegetables are just tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove saucepan from heat.
  2. Melt butter in a separate large saucepan over medium heat. Stir flour into melted butter until smooth. Gradually stir milk into butter-flour mixture; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring constantly, until thickened, about 2 minutes.
  3. Stir cream cheese and Cheddar cheese into milk mixture until melted. Pour potato mixture, including liquid, into milk-cheese mixture; add corn and ham. Cook, stirring occasionally, until soup is heated through, 10 to 15 more minutes.

I'm sorry for the low rating but this was a flop here. It didn't have a ton of flavor & the corn did NOT belong in this. Def would've preferred this as a ham & potato soup without crunchy/chewy ...

Delicious! I followed the recipe, though I did use frozen white/yellow sweet corn, as opposed to canned, and I also prepped both pans (the white sauce and the veg) at the same time on differen...

This tasted wonderful though personally I would have added a bit let cream cheese, it's a little over powering. I know I'll be making it again in the near future.

We liked a lot, but I put more corn and ham in it than recipe called for.

We loved it! Although, to start off, I always saute my vegetables (potatoes, onions, garlic) in butter. I think it makes the soups taste better. Then I followed the recipe and absolutely loved...

Oh my gosh so good. I followed the recipe pretty close minor changes adjusted to my liking. It was th perfect soup. Used the ham leftovers from thanksgiving. And a little corn juice. Very good t...

This hit the spot on a cool October evening. I chose not to peel the potatoes, I just scrubbed them and cubed them. The optional diced carrots and celery were added. I didn't measure them, ju...

Mmmmmmmm...Great recipe! I removed the onion and substituted the cheese for a can of Campbell's condensed cheddar. Made it a double batch.

My Grand Daughter loved this! Made it for her birthday as she requested. She is a very picky eater and I was so happy she loved it. I used the Green Giant Steamable Corn with Butter Sauce.
