Ingredients
  • 4 pieces thick-sliced bacon, chopped
  • 1 medium Vidalia onion, finely chopped
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, chopped
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 small jalapeno, chopped seeds and ribs removed
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • 2 large red potatoes, well scrubbed and small diced
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 16 ounces frozen corn
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 bay leaf
Directions

In a small saucepan over medium heat, saute the bacon until crisp and browned and the fat is rendered. With a slotted spoon, transfer bacon to paper towel and reserve. There should be about 4 tablespoons of bacon grease in pan.

Add the onions and red pepper to pan. Saute until tender and translucent, about 4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Add the jalapeno and garlic and saute until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in the flour until thoroughly combined. Cook the flour until it reaches a slight blonde color, about 1 minute. Stir in the chicken stock and the potatoes and simmer for 10 minutes; potatoes will become soft. Add the cream, corn, cayenne and bay leaf. Simmer for 15 more minutes. Pour into a serving bowl and garnish with the reserved bacon.
