Cheesy Corn Chowder

This recipe can make a lot of soup and makes great left overs. I sometimes add a little Mrs. Dash to spice it up and a can of regular corn to give it more texture.

1 finely chipped onion
4-5 med potatoes, peeled and cubed
1-2 c ham or bacon pieces
Cook all in 3 T butter, browning onion
2 c water (enough to cover potatoes, adjust bouillon to water amount)
1 tsp chicken bouillon

Bring to boil, allow potatoes to cook.
3 cans creamed corn
Opt 1 can fiesta Mexican corn for flavor

Stir so it wont stick to the bottom
1 pint half and half
¾ tsp sugar
Garlic powder

Simmer for a few minutes then add cheese
1-1 ½ c Mozzarella and/or parmesan (I usually make it with mozzarella)
Allow cheese to melt and mix in, remove from heat so the cheese doesnt' start to separate.
