Sweet Corn Chowder

I ordered Sweet Corn Soup at Chili's on Sunday. I fell in love and had to find a similar recipe to make. We made this on Monday(told you I really liked it) and it was a close version of the restaurant's soup. Easy to make and very good. The recipe comes from Recipezaar.

Sweet Corn Soup Recipe

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped (150g)
1 garlic clove, crushed
4 cups chicken stock (made from cubes is fine)
1 cup frozen corn kernels
310 g canned creamed corn
1 medium potato, chopped coarsely (200g)
1/4 cup cream (optional)
white pepper
50 g plain corn chips (optional)
ground black pepper
2 tablespoons fresh chives, chopped

Heat the oil in a large saucepan, add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring, over a medium heat until soft.
Add the stock, creamed corn and potato.Bring to the boil then simmer, uncovered, for about 15 minutes or until the potato is soft.
Blend or process the soup until smooth adding white pepper to taste. Return the soup to the same pan then stir in the remaining corn and cream. Stir over a low heat until corn is tender.
Serve soup topped with crumbled corn chips, pepper and chives.
