I made this for my family and grandma.

Sweet Potato Corn Chowder
  • 6 oz. bacon, chopped
  • 2 small onion
  • 1 cup chopped sweet red pepper
  • 1 cup chopped leek
  • 2 tsp. dried thyme
  • 2 tsp. marjoram
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. pepper
  • 4 sweet potatoes, peeled & cut in small chunks
  • 2 cups whole kernel corn
  • 2 (14 oz.) can chicken broth
  • 3 cups water
  • 4 tsp. cornstarch
  • 1 cup heavy cream
In a 4 qt. saucepan, saute bacon until crisp. Remove and set aside. Add onion, red pepper, leek, marjoram, thyme, salt and pepper to bacon drippings. Saute 10 minutes. Add sweet potatoes, corn, chicken broth and 2 1/2 cups of water. Cook until sweet potatoes are tender 15-20 minutes. Mix cornstarch with remaining 1/2 cup water; stir into soup mixture. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly, cook until thickened. Reduce heat low, stir in cream and bacon; heat just until bubbles appear at side of pan. Serve immediately.
