Corn Chowder with Cilantro
Two styles of corn turn this otherwise traditional corn chowder into a creamy concoction sparked with the pungent flavor of cilantro.
1 tablespoon butter
1 onion, chopped
5 tablespoons all-purpose flour
4 cups boiling water
2 potatoes, peeled and sliced
1 (14-ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained
1 (14-ounce) can cream style corn
1/2 cup NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Nonfat Dry Milk
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
- In a heated skillet, melt butter and sauté onions until translucent and soft, about 5 minutes. Stir in flour; slowly whisk in boiling water, stirring constantly until sauce thickens, about 5 minutes.
- Transfer to a large stockpot and add potatoes, corn, cream style corn, powdered milk, cilantro, salt and pepper. Stir to combine. Simmer gently for about 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Remove from heat and serve.
Makes 4 servings.
