Exploring Mimi’s Cafe Corn Chowder Recipe: Savor the Creamy Comfort

Mimi's Cafe Corn Chowder is a creamy and comforting soup that's perfect for chilly days or whenever you're craving a hearty meal. With its rich flavor and velvety texture, it's sure to warm you up from the inside out. 

Ingredients: – 4 slices bacon, chopped – 1 tablespoon unsalted butter – 1 onion, diced – 2 cloves garlic, minced – 2 celery stalks, diced – 2 carrots, diced

– 4 cups chicken broth – 4 cups frozen corn kernel – 2 medium potatoes, peeled and diced – 1 cup half-and-half – 1/4 cup all-purpose flour – Salt and pepper to taste – Chopped fresh parsley for garnish (optional)

. In a large soup pot or Dutch oven, cook the chopped bacon over medium heat until it's crispy. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the cooked bacon to a plate lined with paper towels to drain excess grease. Set aside.

 In the same pot, add the butter and let it melt. Then, add the diced onion, minced garlic, diced celery, and diced carrots. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are softened, about 5-7 minutes.

. Add the chicken broth, frozen corn kernels, and diced potatoes to the pot. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and let it simmer for about 15-20 minutes, or until the potatoes are fork-tender.

 In a small bowl, whisk together the half-and-half and all-purpose flour until smooth to create a slurry. Pour the slurry into the pot, stirring constantly, until the soup thickens slightly.

 Ladle the Mimi's Cafe Corn Chowder into bowls and garnish with the crispy bacon pieces and chopped fresh parsley, if desired.
