Potato & Corn Chowder

Potato and corn chowder with bacon

Potato soup generally isn’t real exciting.  This recipe will change your mind.  One day, I didn’t feel a trip to town just for fresh milk, so as I was tweaking this recipe I substituted evaporated milk.  Wallah!  This soup has a pleasing, smooth, sweet taste.  Pair with Honey/Slightly Wheat uns for a great meal.
