Corn Chowder Recipe

From the leftovers of our birthday dinner, I created a delightful corn chowder by improvising a recipe in my trusted binder. Here is what I cooked up:
  • saute one small onion and garlic in olive oil;
  • add diced green pepper;
  • add leftover corn (cut off the cob) and potatoes (diced);
  • drop in 2 or 3 tablespoons salsa;
  • add 3 cups vegetable broth;
  • simmer for 20 minutes;
  • add 2-3 tablespoons whole milk (that is what I had on hand, cream or half and half are other options).
  • Turn off and let cool.
From leftovers to a new meal. Saving dollars, saving the earth, and promoting healthy eating -- you got to love it.
