Harvest Corn Chowder

I had the joy of spending a day at my parents home with my precious mom.
We had a wonderful time talking together and laughing the day away.
She also spoiled me with a delicious lunch and dessert.
Did I mention she can make some of the most amazing food :)




My mom made a harvest corn chowder and wow, was it good!
I asked her if I could take photos of the soup and share it on my blog :)
I don't take any credit for making this, 
just the pleasure of consuming and photographing it.

Ingredients:

1 lb. bacon
1 yellow onion, diced
6 lg. carrots, peeled
6 sm. red bell peppers
8 ears corn on the cob
16 oz. can black beans
1/2 cup butter
2 tbsp. granulated chicken bouillon
1 tsp. coarse black pepper
1/2 - 1 cup flour
2 cups heavy whipping cream
2 qt. milk
6 green onions, diced

Chop bacon into bite-size pieces.
In a large pot saute bacon until almost crisp.
Add diced yellow onion and cook for 1 minute.
Peel and cut carrots, add to pot and cook for 1 - 2 minutes.
Clean and remove seeds from the red bell peppers.
Cut into rings and add vegetable mix.
Cut corn from the cobs and add to pot.
Fold in drained black beans.
Saute until the corn begins to brown on the edges.
Remove vegetables from pot.
Add butter, and with a whisk fold in chicken bouillon, pepper and flour.
Cook until the butter is absorbed.
Slowly add cream and continue to cook.
Stir in milk for desired soup consistency and add vegetables.
Top each serving with diced green onions.




** Tip **

The soup will thicken after cooking.
Thin down soup by adding more milk or chicken broth when reheating.




Enjoy, my friends!
It's the perfect soup for Autumn.

YUM...this looks and sounds so good! I am always looking for new recipes that make enough for my hubby to heat up while I'm away and this looks like it will sure fit the bill.

Thanks for sharing with us and thanks to your mom to being such a good cook! xo

This looks wonderfully delicious! I'm so happy it's that time of year to have lots of soups again. We don't typically eat a lot of soups in the summer here because it is a bit hot! I've not made chowder before, so I'll definitely have to try this recipe. Thank you for sharing it with us.

I hope you have a blessed day, Stephanie! <3

Yum-my! Good that you got to spend time and have lunch with your mon,Stephanie. Soup is good when the weather is cool or rainy.

That chowder looks amazing! I will definitely have to make it :)

Amy said...

Hey there Stephanie!

Yes, that is the perfect Autumn soup! I love any kind of soup creamy, thick or thin. Yum! I made a creamed chicken gnocchi soup last night and girl it was delicious! It's going to get down right chilly here this weekend, so we are getting the wood stove ready and getting wood brought up to the house. Busy day here!

I hope you have a wonderful week!
Take Care my sweet friend!

Blessings,
Amy

Jazzmin said...

Oh, this looks amazing! Your Mom sounds like such a wonderful lady, and a wonderful cook. This seems like the kind of meal you eat on a cold night, when you bring your chair up to the fire and sit around it with something warm and wonderful like this for supper :)

I hope we can try this this Fall or Winter! Thank you to you and your Mom for sharing!

Blessings and hugs!!

Maryann said...

I love corn chowder but this one has a twist that I have not seen before...black beans. You know I have to try it!
I may not like cold weather but I love the cooler weather foods like soups, stews and chowders.
Blessings

The chowder looks so yummy. We eat a lot more soups when it gets cool. Did you make the little quilted mat? Oh, I love it! Sweet hugs!

PS Or did your Mom make it? HUGS to you both!

I love corn chowder and this one looks tasty! It is a little different from the one I usually make, so I might just have to try it. I love soups, chowders, and casseroles in the fall and winter...:)And they are good warmed over too! Have a blessed evening....Vicky

Moms do the best cooking! Your mom's chowder looks delicious. Thank you for sharing the recipe. I am tempted to try it but would make it vegetarian style which would be easy to do. :)

Hi Stephanie! Say 'hi' to your Mom for me! I haven't seen her in a while. I see she's been busy making soup!

I can understand where you get your art from, that bowl and napkin and placemat are so pretty. It really enhances the experience, doesn't it??

Thanks for the recipe too. I love soup on a crisp fall day.
Blessings!
Ceil

Nina said...

I need to confess, that I have never tastes a corn chowder! Your moms looks so delicious - our older son is fond of soups, he would surely love this one ... I might surprise him with ypur mom's chowder this weekend :)
Thank you for the inspiration, and many hugs to your beautiful mom!
Nina

Maria said...

MMmmmm...thank you for the recipe...looks delicious! Glad you had a wonderful time visiting with your Mom! Take care, hugs!

Danni SiloHillFarm said...

Stephanie this does look like the perfect Autumn soup! So glad you could enjoy a day with your mom. (I hope you're sharing the dessert too!) I have some ears of corn from earlier in the summer that I froze, do you suppose those would be okay in this? I love that this is a one pot fix!

Conniecrafter said...

Well I am not a big fan of soup but I will have to say I enjoyed the Autumn placemat you had there, very pretty, is that something you made or does your mom do quilting too?
Have a wonderful weekend!

Jade S said...

That soup looks delicious!!! I've been craving soup so much lately, especially with the weather getting so cold up here. This is a must have :)

Shoregirl said...

You make me just a bit jealous getting to spend days with your mom -- mine lives too far away! We visit by phone nearly every day though!
The soup looks delicious -- love fall and all the comfort foods we fix then!

Libby said...

This looks very delicious. Nothing like sharing a homecooked meal with your mother. :-)

Vee said...

Oh I love chowders! This one looks delicious...you and your mom make a great team. Someone has to photograph such yumminess! Love that placemat, too.

Desarae said...

Yummy! This sounds so good! I absolutely, completely LOVE soup and stews...I will add this to my extensive collection! It is a cool, gloomy day today- I think I'll go through the pantry and see if we have the ingredients for this. Thanks for sharing!
