Cheddar Ham Chowder
Brrr. It’s officially fall this weekend, and we’re definitely celebrating (and warming up) with this amazing homey Cheddar Ham Chowder.
Cheddar Ham Chowder is a classic combination of salty ham and gooey cheese, mixed together in a soup along with veggies and potatoes. Cheddar Ham Chowder is one of my easiest soup recipes. Simple and to the point. It’s also a great freezer meal. Serve with warm, crusty bread. Mmm…
Cheddar Ham Chowder Recipe
- 2 cups potatoes peeled and cubed
- 1/2 cup carrots peeled and chopped
- 1/2 cup celery chopped
- 1/2 of an onion chopped
- 2 cups water
- 2 garlic cloves minced
- 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1/4 cup all purpose flour
- 2 cups milk
- 8 oz package of cheddar shredded
- 15 oz can of corn drained
- 1 1/2 cup cooked ham cubed
In a large sauce pan, bring potatoes, carrots, celery, onion, water, and pepper to a boil.
Reduce heat. Simmer 8-10 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Remove from heat. Set aside.
Melt butter in a separate medium sauce pan over low heat. Blend in flour. Let the mixture heat for about a minute.
Slowly pour milk into butter mixture, about a quarter-cup at a time, stirring constantly. Continue cooking and stirring until mixture thickens.
Sprinkle in cheese, and stir until melted.
Pour cheese sauce into vegetable broth that was set aside earlier.
Return to low heat. Add corn and ham. Cook until heated through.
Serve warm with a nice crusty bread
