Seafood Chowder

Seafood Chowder

This actually started as the recipe for Potato Leek Soup, but I played with it a lot and so it's now a completely different recipe. Makes 3-4 bowls of soup.

2-3 c diced potatoes (peel or not, according to taste)
1/4 c diced leek or sweet onion
1/4 c flour
1 c milk, plus (can replace with half n half)
1/2 T onion, chopped
1 T butter
3 c chicken broth
salt & pepper (don't be stingy)
Dash paprika
Dash chili powder
2 cans chopped clams
3/4-1 lb shrimp
2 filets tilapia, diced small
1/2 can corn
1/4 green pepper, grated and lightly sauteed
2-4 mushrooms, roughly chopped
grated white cheese (any kind you like: mozzarella, jack, pepper jack, etc)

Saute clams until cooked but not rubbery; set aside. Cook shrimp and tilapia, then set aside. Saute onions in butter. Add flour and mix. Add 1/2 broth. Simmer slowly. In another pot, mix 1/2 broth, potatoes and leeks. Boil, then simmer 20 mins. Potatoes should get soft. Smash some of the potatoes as you stir. Mix pots together, then add milk, paprika, chili powder, salt & pepper. Add clams, shrimp, tilapia, corn, and green peppers. Cook. Add additional milk, as needed.  Add cheese and mushrooms at the end. Cover and take off heat.
