I'm putting one of my new favorite (and low-calorie, might I add) recipes up today.
Creamy Ham and Potato Chowder
3 c. frozen Southern-Style has brown potatoes (such as Ore-Ida, I use Potatoes O'Brien and it's delicious!)
2 1/2 c. 2% milk (I use skim and it's still good)
1/4 t. salt
1 c. diced ham (such as Cumberland Gap)
1/4 t. black pepper
1/2 c. (2oz) 50%-less-fat shredded sharp white Cheddar cheese (such as Cabot)
1/4 c. chopped green onions
Combine first 3 ingredients in a meduim saucepan; cover and bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring frequently.
Stir in ham and pepper; cover, reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes.
Mash potatoes slightly using the back of a spoon (I skip mashing the potatoes); stir in cheese and green onions.
Makes 5 servings, 1 c. each.
