Ham, Chicken and Corn Chowder

Ham, chicken and corn chowder

1 cup chopped ham
1 cup chopped, cooked chicken
1 small onion, peeled and chopped
1 small green pepper, cored and chopped
about ½ cup chopped celery
2 cans cream corn
1 pkg. frozen corn, thawed
3-4 cups milk or half and half, or fat free half and half
3 tbsp. oil or butter
a pinch of red pepper and some black pepper to taste

Heat the oil or butter, then add the chopped ham, onion, green pepper and celery.   Sautee until the ham and vegetables are lightly browned and tender.   Add the chicken, creamed corn and the thawed frozen corn.    Stir well and heat to a simmer.   Add enough milk or half and half to get the thickness you desire.   Add a pinch of red pepper, some black pepper and continue to heat until just below a simmer.     If you like, you can garnish each bowl with some crumbled bacon or grated cheddar cheese.    Makes enough to feed 2-4 people.
