Week of Legates' House dinners (Tuesday)

Are you ready? You're going to want to write this one down :)

I found this recipe in my WeightWatchers cook book, and it's only 5 points per serving :)

Corn and Bacon Chowder (my kids like to call it Yeti soup)

You will need
(I always have to double this recipe)

1 medium saucepan (big, if you are going to double it)
2 Slices of bacon
1 Onion
1/2 Bell pepper (we like to use green, but you can use any color)
2 1/2 cups of Chicken stock
2 Medium Potatoes
2 cups whole corn kernels
1/4 cup light cream

In your saucepan over medium-high heat, cook the bacon in 2 tablespoons of water until crisp. With a slotted spoon, transfer to a paper towel; discard the liquid in the pan

Chop the onion and pepper, and add it to the pan with 2 tablespoons of water, and saute for 5 minutes. During all of that peel and chop your potatoes. Add the stock and potatoes to your sauce pan, and bring it to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Stir in the corn, and simmer for 5 more minutes. Then remove heat and let it cool slightly.

Transfer 2 cups of the soup to a food processor or blender and puree. Pour back into the saucepan and stir in the cream. Tear the bacon into bits and use it to top your soup, and your done :)

Check back tomorrow, for chicken night :)
