Our Best Bites and have been wanting to try it ever since! It's easy and so warm and creamy, perfect soup for this cold weather.
2 Tbsp. butter
1/4 c. all-purpose flour
1 c. water
2 1/2 c. milk
2 regular-sized chicken bouillon cubes
1/2 lb. bacon, cooked and crumbled (optional but please don't skip it)
1 small onion, diced
2-3 red potatoes, cubed
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
1 can corn, drained or about 2 cups frozen fresh corn
Salt and Pepper to taste
a dash or two of hot sauce
Melt butter over low heat in large pot, add flour and whisk until it forms a small ball. Add water to the pot then whisk until all lumps are gone. Add the milk and bouillon cubes then bring to a simmer. Add the potatoes, onions, garlic and simmer, stirring often. Do not bring it to a boil. Cook for around 20 minutes or until potatoes are cooked through. Add bacon, corn, and pepper. Let cook for 2 to 4 minutes, taste before you salt. The bacon adds a lot of saltiness already. Top with cheese.
