Corn Cheese Chowder

I saw Amber's post on Mexican corn chowder and realized I hadn't posted this fabulous Corn Cheese Chowder. We love it!

6 slices of bacon (diced)
1 small onion (chopped)
3 tbsp All purp. flour
2 c. water
1 c. peeled, diced potato
1/4 tsp dried sage
1 bay leaf
1 c. non-dairy powdered creamer
1 c. boiling water
1 & 1/2 c. grated cheddar cheese
1 can whole kernel corn
1 can creamed corn
1 tsp salt/pepper

Combine bacon & onion in large pot. Cook until bacon is crisp and onion is tender. Blend in flour; cook slowly about 1 minute. Add 2 cups of water, potatoes, sage, & bay leaf. Cover and cook on medium heat until potatoes are tender (10-15 mins.)

Remove bay leaf. Add creamer, 1 cup boiling water, grated cheese corn, salt/pepper. Heat until soup comes to a boil & cheese melts.

Love this recipe!!!
