CORN CHOWDER with Turkey Ham



1 medium chopped onion
1T butter or margarine
2 cups potatoes, diced and peeled
1 medium bell pepper, chopped
1/2 cup water
2 cans of cream style corn *
2 cups of milk
1 cup diced turkey ham
In saucepan, saute onion and pepper in butter for 5 minutes.
Add potatoes and 1/2 cup water. Cook for 5 minutes.
Add corn, milk, and ham. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Serve with a salad!
(*If I don't have cream style corn, I use 2 cans of whole corn and cream it! Drain both cans, reserving 3/4 of liquid. Dump kernel corn into saucepan add 1 1/2 teaspoons of sugar. Blend reserve liquid with 2 tablespoons of cornstarch and add to corn. Begin to heat corn. Scoop out 3/4 cup of the mix and blend well in a blender and add back to saucepan and continue heating, until thickened. Salt and pepper to taste.)
