Amazingly Easy and Delicious Ham and Potato (or fill in the blank and potato) Soup!!

This was super yummy - this is a GREAT chowder base, you can play with it and add ingredient combinations to your heart's desire!

It is a Ham and Potato Soup recipe and I've listed the original recipe below. I had some leftover bacon wrapped cheesy chicken from last night's dinner that I thought might go really well in this recipe, so I diced it up and added it plus some corn I had in place of the ham and it was soooo yummy! Other than those changes I followed the recipe precisely for seasonings and the milk mixture. It was creamy and perfectly seasoned. Not too thick or thin, the texture was wonderful.

Ingredients
  • 3 1/2 cups peeled and diced potatoes
  • 1/3 cup diced celery
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped onion
  • 3/4 cup diced cooked ham
  • 3 1/4 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons chicken bouillon granules
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon ground white or black pepper, or to taste
  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 5 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups milk
Directions
  1. Combine the potatoes, celery, onion, ham and water in a stockpot. Bring to a boil, then cook over medium heat until potatoes are tender, about 10 to 15 minutes. Stir in the chicken bouillon, salt and pepper.
  2. In a separate saucepan, melt butter over medium-low heat. Whisk in flour with a fork, and cook, stirring constantly until thick, about 1 minute. Slowly stir in milk as not to allow lumps to form until all of the milk has been added. Continue stirring over medium-low heat until thick, 4 to 5 minutes.
  3. Stir the milk mixture into the stockpot, and cook soup until heated through. Serve immediately.
