Ahhhhh, just in time for the wet weather here in Seattle! This is so easy and so darn good. I was so glad the photo came out, ’cause I just ate the last bowl for lunch!
Use a cooked rotisserie chicken from your local mega mart to make it even easier to prepare. Top with grated cheddar, sour cream or even bacon bits and of course…hot sauce! A side of cornbread would be mighty nice too.
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped celery
1 finely chopped jalapeno pepper (seeded and diveined)
3 tablespoons flour
1 cup peeled cubed potato (any kind will do)
3 cups 2% milk (note to skinny girls: don’t try to make this with skim)
2 cups cubed cooked chicken
1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen corn
1 14 oz can cream corn
1 teaspoon dried thyme
Salt and pepper to taste
In large dutch oven, melt butter. Add onion, celery and jalapeno. Saute until tender.
Add flour and cook for an additional minute or two until smooth. Add potato and remaining ingredients…simmer until potatoes are tender…serve! How easy is that?
