Corn & Potato Chowder

This Corn & Potato Chowder is so hearty and comforting, and it's a perfect dinner for a cool fall day. The recipe is originally from Whole Foods, and while I make mine with chicken broth, you can easily make this a vegetarian meal by using vegetable broth instead. I've also used gluten-free flour in place of regular, and it comes out great. Last, if you really want to make your family happy, cook a few strips of bacon in the sauce pan first; then take out the bacon and use the fat to cook your onions (instead of butter). It adds incredible flavor.
