Potato Corn Chowder

This is one of my favorite recipes. We just had it for dinner and OH BABY! As Tiffany will vouch, I absolutely love chowders and soups, and this one is a winner.

2 T. butter or margarine
1/4 c. flour
1 C. water
1 tsp (cube) chicken bouillon
2 1/2 C. milk
2-3 med. potatoes, chopped
1/2 C. onion, chopped
1/2 c. cooked bacon, chopped
1 c. frozen corn

Melt butter over low heat in medium saucepan (we like a large one though); stir in flour. Stirring constantly on medium heat, add water, bouillon (we actually use 2 tsp. bouillon), and milk. *salt and pepper to taste!!!* Once all is stirred and mixed, add chopped potatoes and onion. Cook until potatoes are tender and soup is thick. Once potatoes are soft, add bacon and corn. Once corn is warm, serve and enjoy!!! This soup is so good. Make sure you sample frequently to see if you need to add more salt and/or pepper. We used to fry up the bacon, but now we use the pre-cooked stuff and it's great! Both work great though. We eat this with rolls usually, although tonight we had scones.
