Ham & Potato Chowder

This is comfort food at its best. Perfect for a cold winter's night and goes together quickly. We never have any leftovers when I make this soup. Perfect with a loaf of crusty bread...

1 med. onion , chopped
1 Tbsp, olive oil
1/2c. -1 c. diced ham ( I use our extra deli ham from the fridge, great way to use it up before it turns)
4 c. chicken broth
3 large potatoes or 6 small ones, cubed
1 can corn(approx. 15 oz), drained
1 c. milk, divided
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/3 c. flour

In a large saucepan , cook and stir onion and ham in oil until onions are tender. Add broth and potatoes and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 15 min, or until potatoes are tender.

Stir in corn, 1/2 c. milk, salt and pepper. In a bowl whisk together flour and 1/2 c. milk. Stir into soup and return to a boil. Cook for 2-3 more min. or until thickened. Serve.
