Corn Chowder

So another week another soup.
This week it was corn chowder and the amazing thing is there is no cream or half and half so its much better calorie wise :)

1 medium uncooked potato
1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 2 cups corn ( I used frozen)
  • 1 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 4 ounces cooked bacon
  • 2 cups fat-free skim milk
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp of hot pepper sauce 
  • 1/2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup water
  • Pierce potato in several places with a fork; microwave on high power until tender, turning over once, about 8 minutes. Allow to cool; peel and mash.
  • Meanwhile, coat a large saucepan with cooking spray. Add celery, onion, corn and red pepper; sauté over medium-high heat for 5 minutes.
  • Stir bacon and milk into saucepan; stir in mashed potato and mix well. Season with salt, pepper and hot pepper sauce; stir to combine.
In another bowl combine water and cornstarch. Once mixed add to the chowder to thicken.
  •  Cover and simmer 10 minutes (do not allow to boil). Serves 4 :)
