Creamy Ham and Corn Soup

Comfort food that is a cinch to put together? Sign me up! I have been looking for new recipes to try, but a top requirement is that I can prepare it in a reasonable amount of time. It only takes around a half hour to make, and most of the ingredients are things you probably have on hand!

You can’t go wrong with the flavors here: ham, sweet corn, red peppers, and onion, plus the perfect amount of ground pepper. With temperatures staying around or below freezing lately, this soup hit the spot!

  • 4 cans (60 oz) chicken broth
  • 4 cups corn
  • 2 cups half and half
  • 1 cup onion, chopped
  • 2/3 cup red pepper, chopped
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground pepper
  • 2 cups ham, cubed
  • dill, snipped, optional

1. Combine broth, corn, cream, onion, and red pepper in a pot, and bring to a boil. Combine water, flour, salt, and pepper until smooth, and gradually stir into pot. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until slightly thickened. Stir in ham.

2. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Garnish with dill if desired.

Yield: 6-8 servings.
