Sometimes, nothing beats a classic like corn chowder. With bacon, potatoes, and lots of fresh summer corn, it’s impossible to not want to warm up with a bowl.
- In a large pot over medium heat, cook bacon until crisp. Remove bacon onto a paper-towel lined plate. Drain all but one tablespoon fat and cook the onions until translucent, about 4 minutes. Add potatoes and chicken stock and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for about 10 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender.
- When potatoes are tender, whisk flour into milk and stir into pot. Add corn, cream, cheese and bacon and bring soup back to a boil, cooking until cheese is melted, 2 to 3 minutes more.
- Season with salt and pepper, garnish with chives and serve.
