The soup obsession continues, but thankfully, the fall weather has arrived, making building fires much more logical.
This was yet another riff on the Leek Soup mix. Knorr's packets are nothing if not adaptable. Actually, this took advantage of the last of the autumn sweet corn, with the hearty addition of ham and bacon.
Ham and potato chowder
3 slices of cooked ham, cubed
5 slices of thick-cut bacon, cooked and crumbled
2 lbs. of red potatoes, cubed
2 c. sweet corn, cut off the cob
3 leaves kale
3 carrots, sliced
1/2 package baby bella mushrooms, sliced
1 packet Knorr Leek soup mix
4-5 cups water
4 t. chicken boullion base
1/2 c. white wine
Prep all ingredients, putting potatoes in a bowl of cold water to prevent browning. Add meat and vegetables into Dutch oven. Add packet and boullion. Add wine and water.
Prep fire and make sure your tripod is in place. Hang oven over fire.
Cook over fire for about 45 minutes to an hour, depending on the flame. Enjoy!
