I Call it chow-DA.

I blogged from sun-up to sun-down on Wednesday.
Not that I’ll ever TELL anyone that.
Excepting at dinnertime when I finally admitted
I had nothing planned.
{Nothing but the rock-awesome POM recipes
that will be featured next week.}
It was frantic hour.
Or, rather,
Frantic 5-minnies.
Because that’s about all it takes to make this
bowl of corn chowda.
And though some of the children boo-hooed
the addition of green chilies,
The Hubster said
It was
{And really, it was.}

Cilantro & Chicken Corn Chowder

1/2 stick butter

1/2 onion

1/2 c. flour

Melt butter in a large soup pot. Cook onion for 2-3 minutes, then whisk in flour. Once flour in mixed into butter, immediately whisk in

5 cups whole milk

Then add:

1 (12.5 oz.) can cooked chicken breast

1 chicken boullion

2 c. frozen white corn

1 small can mild green chilies

1/2 c. chopped cilantro

1 T. cumin

Salt & Pepper to taste

Stir just until soup comes to a boil & thickens. Super Speedy. Dinner is served.

I’m frantically preparing the contest prize. It should be done JUST IN TIME for our first giveaway which will begin on MONDAY. Tell your friends. Prepare your vowels. You will be chanting: “Ooooh. Soooo. Cuuuuute.”
