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.
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.
