Potato Chowder

potato chowder recipe

Sometimes you know something is bad for you, but you eat it anyways because it just tastes so darn good!  This potato chowder is definitely one of those dishes.  N made this chowder a while back, when I was still in my sick/too busy/no motivation to cook phase.  Luckily he likes to experiment in the kitchen, and the results are usually pretty good!

Potato Chowder

2 links spicy sausage, sliced
1 boneless, skinless chicken breast, diced
1/2 pound bacon, chopped
2 onions, chopped
3 stalks celery, chopped
3 cups milk
1 cups light cream (18%)
2 cups light sour cream
2 baking potato, washed and grated
1 red pepper, diced
2 or 3 bay leaves
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

In a large stock pot, cook bacon until crisp.  Remove with a slotted spoon and place on a paper towel lined plate.  Drain some of the bacon fat.

Add diced chicken and sliced sausage to the pot and cook through.  Then add the onions and celery. Saut√© until the vegetables soften.  Add the milk, cream, sour cream, grated potato, bay leaves, and cayenne pepper. Stir and cook over medium heat until the potato has dissolved and thickened the soup, about 20-30 minutes. Season with pepper.
