Corn and Green Chili Chowder

Corn and Green Chili Chowder

5 large boiled or baked potatoes peeled and cut into cubes

½ a large onion

3 large Serrano or Hatch chilies (we buy these in season locally - they are shipped in and we buy 50lb bags and have them roasted and then freeze them - that are DABOMB!!!)

2 cups frozen corn thawed or two cans sweet corn drained

5 slices bacon cooked and crumbled

4 cups half and half or whole milk - the skimmer the milk the more thin it will be

2 Tbsp. Flour

Salt and pepper to taste

Begin by browning onion, chilies, corn and bacon together in stew pot. Add cubed potatoes and toss over heat for about a minute or so. Use potato masher and mash all ingredients in stew pot until chunky. Add flour and stir into mixture. Add milk and bring to a boil slowly. You can add water to thin as you need to and add salt and pepper to taste. I serve this with Mexican Cornbread or a quiche.
