Recipe Ingredients for Corn Chowder with Bacon

4 slices bacon, chopped
1 c onion, chopped
1/2 t garlic, minced (2 cloves)
1 sweet potato, peeled and cubed
3 yukon gold potatoes, peeled and cubed
16 oz corn, frozen
4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
2 cups unsweetened almond milk

Recipe Directions for Corn Chowder with Bacon

  1. Preheat a large pot or dutch oven over medium-high heat (any large pot that is not non-stick will do). Add the bacon and cook until crispy, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel using a slotted spatula. Reduce heat to medium and add the garlic and onion to the rendered bacon fat. Saute for about 5 minutes or until the onion becomes tender and slightly browned. Turn heat back up to medium-high. Immediately add the chicken broth and water, stirring to release the browned bits from the bottom of the pan.

  2. Stir in the potatoes and corn. Simmer for about 20 minutes over medium heat, or until potatoes are fork-tender. Add the almond milk. With an immersion blender, blitz the soup a couple of times to blend and cream it up, but still leave it with chunks - it is a chowder, after all!
