I have always loved potato soup and this is just another way to enjoy it. This delicious, filling dish is great on a cold wintery day. It is great served in individual bread bowls and topped with a dollop of sour cream, sprinkled with shredded cheese and chopped green onions or chives. Such a comfort food when you need something to warm your insides. It's even better the next day after the flavors meld. I haven't taken pictures yet but feel free to add your own pictures if you decide to try the recipe. Enjoy!!

How to Make Cheesy Potato Corn Chowder


  • 1In a medium-sized, non-stick skillet, brown the beef seasoned with salt and pepper, drain and set aside.
  • 2In a 3-quart soup pot, sauté the onion, celery, bell pepper, basil, parsley and garlic in 2 tablespoon butter until vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes.
  • 3Add the chicken broth, potatoes, browned ground beef and corn to the soup pot. Add more chicken broth or water to cover the vegetables if necessary. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and cover. Simmer for 12-15 minutes or until potatoes are fork tender.
  • 4Meanwhile, in the non-stick skillet, melt the remaining butter. Add the flour, stir and cook for 3-5 minutes until bubbly. This will help thicken the soup stock.
  • 5Add butter-flour mixture to the soup pot, stir well and bring to a boil. Cook and stir for 2-3 minutes.
  • 6Reduce the heat to low and stir in the cheese, milk, salt and pepper, stirring until cheese melts.
  • 7Remove from the heat and serve immediately. Great served in a nice bread bowl and garnished with sour cream, chopped green onions or chives.
