This recipe was given to me by one of my good friends, and fellow co-worker several years ago. I've made it so many times that the paper the recipe is on has turned yellow and is falling apart. Another family favorite of ours, and especially good on a cold winter night, or whenever you have an inkling for comfort food.
In a large sauce pan, melt butter and bouillon cubes. When mixture is hot, whisk in flour. Then, slowly add milk, half & half, and water 1 cup at a time. Continue to stir so it doesn't burn on the bottom. Cook about 10 minutes, or till thickened.
Add corn with juice, potatoes, & cheese and stir. Then, add salt and pepper to taste. OPTIONAL: Top chowder with crumbled cooked bacon as a garnish.
