Fall has come to Kansas. The leaves are changing from green to orange and red. Temperatures are mild during the day and cool at night. It’s the perfect weather to start soup season. One of my new favorite foods is this Pressure Cooker Potato Corn Chowder.
Potato soup is definitely comfort food. The sweetness of the corn and the speediness of using the electric pressure cooker makes this even more comforting.
I remember as a child that when my mom was under the weather she would ask my dad to make her potato soup. When she wasn’t under the weather she made potato soup for herself as the ultimate comfort food.
This Pressure Cooker Potato Corn Chowder was on my 2 week menu plan. However, when I got home from work yesterday and discovered that Daughter Number Four was feeling under the weather I made the decision to make her some comfort food.
Serving this with Grilled Cheese Sandwiches adds protein, plus a little bit of buttery crunch. D4 was delighted to have homemade soup and sandwiches to warm her and help her feel better.
Not only is this easy and delicious, but it tastes amazing the second day, too. D4, who is still feeling a bit under the weather, asked if there was any left for lunch. I gladly heated up the Pressure Cooker Potato Corn Chowder. Today I served it with little corn bread loaves.
You definitely need to give this Pressure Cooker Potato Corn Chowder a try. It is easy and fast, being table ready in about 15 minutes. Also, it has a light creamy texture with just a bit of zip; everything chowder is supposed to be.
