Corn Potato Chowder


Recipe Rundown :
Taste: Earthy, fresh, and slightly sweet.
Texture: The soup is creamy while the potatoes are perfectly soft and chunky
Ease: Very easy! Simple prep work and just a half hour cooking time.
Appearance: I love the combination of green chives, yellow corn, and red potatoes.
Pros: Quick, easy, and perfect for lunch or as an addition to dinner.
Cons: None, except this dish could potentially be diminished by low-quality frozen corn, so use the best you can afford.
Would I make this again? Yes!
