How to make a corn chowder recipe taste better? This simple recipe of corned beef, potatoes, and green onions is always full of sweet, smoky, delicious flavor! Make it for a warm winter day, or serve it hot whenever you crave comfort food. This meal is perfect for entertaining or serving at home. You can be as creative as you like with this dish, adding variety or just keeping it pretty much the same as it is.
Start with a couple of cups of low sodium chicken broth to reduce the salt in the recipe. Using canned corn will also help this recipe, as long as you don’t replace the potatoes with dried. You can mash the potatoes into the mixture or cut them into chunks and mix them well. I prefer the potatoes in my soup, but it’s really up to you.
Next, drain the roasted potatoes and add them to the crockpot along with about three cups of uncooked and chopped green onions. Use a rubber or zip lock bag to keep the green onions from sticking to the bottom of the slow cooker. Add the rest of the ingredients, including the remaining two cups of chicken broth. Stir to combine. Cover for about 2 hours or until the chowder has cooked completely.
Once you are done cooking the chowder, remove it from the heat source and let it cool slightly. Unmaintainable chowders can burn easily if not cooked correctly. If your chowder does not seem to be coming out as smoothly as you would like, add some cream or milk to thin the mixture. Bring it to the same temperature as the rest of your meals while it rests. Check it regularly to ensure the thickening of the cream.
Just a couple of ingredients to change the way that your cheddar cheese goes from being bland to being delicious. First, you can add in a little bit of pepper. Once it is completely cooled, it is time to add in the last items. A little pepper and a little cheddar cheese make a tasty combination.
Next, you can play around with the other ingredients. For instance, if you want to add a little bit of heat, you can add chipotle pepper and a bit of chili powder. If you want to add a little bit of sweetness, you can do so by mixing in a little bit of Cayenne pepper. Other additions you may consider include onions, garlic, tomatoes, and other veggies (such as red or green peppers). You can experiment with the combinations to find what combination provides the exact taste you are going for.
It really is pretty simple to make a good-tasting corn chowder. The best part is you can easily make it warm and keep it warm. I often take it out of the refrigerator and reheat it for an hour or two before serving. That way, it is always nice and cuddly when coming around for a warm night or day.
If you happen to love soup but are not a big fan of high-calorie foods, you will find that making a puree is a delicious and healthy way to enjoy your vegetables. There are many ways to make a puree, such as using a blender, a food processor, or even your kitchen blender. If you are not too worried about calories, try using a potato masher to cut up your vegetables and mush them up for a tasty and nutritious meal. Just remember that the more items you put in your purse, the more calories you will end up consuming. So, be careful not to overdo it.
