Healthy Recipe: Potato Chowder

Winter is alway a great time for soup and I do enjoy trying new soup recipes, especially healthy ones!  This recipe was in a booklet I received at a Weight Watchers meeting.  I did have to make some substitutions according to what I had on hand, but I liked it.  It's a good hearty soup.

Potato Chowder

4 Yukon Gold potatoes
1 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped onion
4 pieces cooked corn on the cob, kernels removed with knife (I used a combination of frozen and canned corn instead)
1 cup diced red bell pepper
4 oz. diced Canadian-style bacon
2 cups fat-free milk
Salt, pepper, and hot pepper to taste

Pierce potatoes in several places with fork; microwave on high until tender, turning over once, about 10-12 minutes or so.  Allow to cool; peel and mash.  Meanwhile, coat a large saucepan with cooking spray.  Add celery, onion, corn kernels and red pepper; saute over med-high heat, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes.  Stir bacon and milk into saucepan; stir in mashed potato and mix well.  Season with salt, pepper, and hot pepper; stir to combine.  Cover and simmer 10 minutes (do not allow to boil).

Makes 4 servings, 6 WW pts per serving
If you try it out, let me know what you think!

Have a healthy day!
