How to Make Pam's Broccoli - Corn Chowder


  • 1Notes: You can use chopped frozen broccoli, and drained canned corn if desired.
    Also, you may substitute one large can of evaporated milk and two cups of water for the milk and half and half.

  • 5Simmer until thickened and veggies are completely cooked. Adjust seasonings and serve with a grind of fresh pepper and a sprinkle of parsley over the top. (Or to be really decadent, sprinkle with some finely shredded sharp cheddar cheese)
