  • While soup simmers, melt butter in a saucepan and whisk in cornstarch. Add milk and whisk to combine. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly, 3 to 5 minutes. Add Cheddar cheese and stir until melted, about 2 minutes. Pour mixture into the pot with the soup. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until heated through, about 2 minutes more, or until ready to serve.

This was excellent! I thought for sure I would end up saying it needed some herbs but it was perfect as written. I did make two small changes based off of what I had on hand. I used russet potatoes instead of yukon and frozen peas instead of frozen corn. Peas work great too so when I make this again I'll use 1 cup of peas and 1 cup of corn for an even more colorful bowl. Thanks for the super simple flavorful soup! Read More

This is a nice hearty chowder. A salad would make the perfect side. And of course, whatever type of bread, biscuit, roll you like best.I used a cup of carrots instead of 1/2 cup and added 2 green onions chopped. Saved a little out for garnish. Read More
