Cheddar-Ham Chowder


2 cups potatoes, peeled and cubed
1/2 cup carrots, peeled and sliced
1/2 cup celery, sliced
1/4 cup onion, chopped
2 cups water
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups milk
8-ounce package shredded Cheddar cheese
15-ounce can corn, drained
1-1/2 cups cooked ham, cubed


In a saucepan, bring potatoes, carrots, celery, onion, water, salt and pepper to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer for 8 to 10 minutes, or until vegetables are tender. Remove from heat; set aside. Melt butter in another saucepan over low heat; blend in flour. Pour in milk; cook and stir until thickened. Sprinkle in cheese and stir until melted; stir into potato mixture. Return to low heat; add corn and ham. Cook until heated through.

**Thoughts~Well, this recipe was definitely "quick and easy" just like the title of the cookbook said. It was also tasty as all get out! Give it a try.**
