Simple Potato Chowder

Simple Potato Chowder

Serves 4 to 6

Chowders, thick fall and winter soups traditionally made with dairy products like milk or heavy cream, are a comfort food for many of us. Stir a cup of thawed frozen corn into the chowder during the last 5 minutes of cooking, if desired. For a heartier version, leave the potatoes unpeeled.

  • 1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
  • 1 cup packed grated carrots

  • 4 cups 2% milk
  • 2 teaspoons Better than Bouillon, (optional)
  • Cayenne pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • Ground black pepper, to taste
  • Paprika for garnish
