Flavorful Fridays Corn Chowder

Corn Chowder

So, I shared a picture of this yummy soup on my FB the other day and had so many people ask for the recipe so here it is!!
Sorry that I don't have pictures of showing all the different steps.....I wasn't home while it was being made!!

What you need:
3 cans cream of potato soup
1 can of milk per each can of potato soup you use {so in this case, 3 cans of milk. If you are making more or less, make sure that the cans of milk and cans of potato soup you use are of equal quantity}.
3 cans whole kernel corn
1 can mixed vegetable medley {with carrots, peas, green beans, etc in it}
1 package of whole baby carrots {use however many you want}
1-2 potatoes-diced
1 onion-diced
1 package of bacon

How to make:
In a large pot, add the soup, milk, corn & can of mixed veggies.
In one pan, steam the diced potatoes and baby carrots.
In another pan, cook the bacon. KEEP THE GREASE in the pan! Once the bacon is cooked {about well done but not burnt}, remove it. You will want to crumble {or cut with kitchen sheers} the bacon up into the pot of soup. Then sautee the diced onion IN the bacon grease. This adds soooo much flavor!
Once the potatoes and baby carrots are nice and steamed, add them to the pot of soup along with the sauteed onions.
Add lots of pepper and some garlic. You can use organic garlic from a jar or dry garlic like you find in the spice aisle.
{No need to salt as the cans of soup have plenty of that already!}

Cook through until everything is nice and hot!

This will make approximately 6-8 servings.
{In the photo above-extra was made to have plenty of leftovers since we were having lots of people over for dinner that night!}
