Corn Chowder
This recipe serves:   
2 large ears of corn, shucked
1 slice uncooked bacon, diced
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped celery
1 sprig fresh thyme
1 bay leaf
1 1/2 cups low-sodium chicken or vegetable broth
6 small red potatoes
2 cups reduced fat (2%) milk
1 red pepper, diced
1 teaspoon chopped, fresh dill

Cooking Instructions
1. Preheat the grill or broiler.

2. Grill or broil the corn until it turns golden brown. Set aside to cool.

3. Put the bacon in a soup pot and cook over low heat for 5 minutes. Add the onion, celery, thyme and bay leaf and cook until the vegetables are soft, about 10 minutes.

4. Meanwhile, slice the corn kernels from the cob.

5. Dice the potatoes and add them to the soup pot with the chicken broth. Simmer until the potatoes are just tender, about 10 minutes. Add the milk, peppers, corn and dill and heat thoroughly. Remove and discard the thyme and bay leaf. Adjust the salt and pepper and serve.
