Easy Hearty Corn Chowder

This is an easy way to make great corn chowder, pair this with hot crusty bread for a winter warm up. I invented this recipe and fail to measure most things I invent, so make adjustments as you feel necessary...

1 box Imagine Creamy Sweet Corn soup (I get it at Trader Joe's)
1-1 1/2 lb bacon (depending on how bacon-y you want the soup)
1/2 med yellow onion
6-8 small yellow potatoes
1/2 bag frozen sweet corn
2 Tbs butter
salt and pepper to taste

Cube potatoes and put in a glass dish, slice butter over the top and season with salt and pepper. Cover and microwave 7 minutes on high.

Cut bacon into small pieces and chop onion, saute in stock pot while potatoes are cooking. Add potatoes and corn, to bacon and onions, saute until corn thaws, onions are translucent and bacon is cooked through. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Add creamy corn soup and let simmer 15 minutes.

Serve with hot loaf of crusty bread.
