Cheesy Cream Of Corn Soup!

What is any better than a hearty bowl of soup on a cold winters day? Maybe a second bowl ! This is a thick, rich & hearty soup loaded with meat, cheese & creamed corn of course! This bowl of soup is a meal & it will probably be one that you will make often ! This versatile recipe may be adapted to your families taste. Enjoy it & make this recipe yours!

1 Lb Ground Meat ( I used ground chicken but you could use ground beef, ground turkey, ham cut up into bite sized cubes or make the soup without meat & then add 1lb lump crab or 1lb peeled & cleaned raw shrimp or crumbled crisp cooked bacon.) any of those would work nicely. I wanted a more rustic casual dinner so i used the ground chicken & it is amazing!
2 Peeled Chopped Onion large dice
2 Ribs of Celery large dice
1 lb Frozen Sliced Carrots       
4 Medium Potatoes Peeled & diced again medium dice
2 LB Frozen White Corn Creamed Style or your favorite Cram Style Corn using 2lbs.
2 TBS Parsley Chopped or Dried Flakes         
2 TSP Paprika
1 TSP White Pepper         
48 OZ Light & Fat Free Chicken Stock  
2 Cans 10 & 3/4 OZ 98% Fat Free Cream of Celery Soup      
4 OZ Cream Cheese   
1 Cup Milk
2 TBS Butter
1 Cup Sour Cream
3 Cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese ( Mild)

Cook burger until no longer pink in a deep, heavy soup pot. If using chicken or turkey cook in 2 TBS Olive Oil. If using beef just drain beef after cooking. Add onions, celery & parsley and cook until slightly soft about 10 minutes over medium heat. Now add stock, creamed corn, celery soups, carrots & potatoes. Cook until potatoes & carrots are soft about a half an hour or so. Add cream cheese & seasonings & stir until cream cheese is melted. Add milk, butter & cheese & cook on low about 1 hour stirring often so soup does not stick. If using the seafood, ham or bacon you want to add that now & cook about 15 more minutes. SERVE ! This recipe makes over a gallon of soup so if you do not want that much just cut the recipe in 1/2 but it is SO GOOD you WILL want a large batch! TRUST ME ! This is so good with crusty bread & salad that you will make this again & again ! This freezes very well so you could always make it & save it for another cold night for a fast thaw & heat dinner!
