I am making this tonight, with our leftover ham. I seen this on a TV show, and it looked awesome. Also, I have never pureed a chowder!!! So this is going to be interesting!!!

Ham and Corn Chowder

3 Tablespoons olive oil or bacon fat
1/2 cup diced onions
2 tablespoons chopped garlic
1/2 cup smoked ham, sausage or Cajun taso Ham; diced
1/4 cup green bell peppers, diced
1 cup potatoes, peeled and medium diced
3 cups fresh corn kernels
1-2 tablespoons diced chipotle peppers
3 cups chicken stock or water
2 cups cream
Kosher salt and black peppers
1/2 cup jump lump crab meat garnish (optional)
  1. In an 8 qt. saucepan heat butter and oil and saute onions, celery, garlic, and ham for 5 minutes.
  2. Add corn, green bell peppers, and chipotle peppers. Stir well.
  3. Add stock and potatoes and bring to a boil.
  4. Reduce to a simmer and simmer for 20-30 minutes -- until potatoes are tender.
  5. Add cream and simmer another 20 minutes.
  6. Taste for salt and pepper.
  7. Place mixture in a food processor and puree. (This may make 2 batches)
  8. Place soup in service bowls and garnish with crab meat, croutons or diced bacon.
Serves 8.

Hi, ITK. Erik - that looks like a fantastic recipe - wel'll be trying it soon!

Leftover ham is great in scalloped potatoes or chopped up in tinier pieces and used in a twice-baked potato. Brown it up in a skillet and serve with scrambled eggs.

I would grill it with pineapple chunks, or dice it up and make a casserole with potatoes, scallion, cheese of your choice and bechamelle

Shredded (torn into thin pieces, if possible) and tossed in your favourite bbq sauce and/or some grainy mustard and placed into a hearty roll or between some sour dough or other delicious bread, with oodles of salad greens and perhaps some slices of bell peppers.

Thank you! Due to the amount of servings one gets from this recipe I am going to try it. Thanks for being so prompt as I am going to the store this morning to avoid any New Year's crowd, if that is possible. I love the ham but then salvaging it later is not easy. I appreciate all the suggestions but this is new one and I sure will give try. Thanks to all of you and good luck with your leftovers.

Mom always made ham and lima bean soup. It's got a thinish broth, but it is seasoned with a bit of salt, pepper and cinnamon. There's also a sweetness to the soup from brown sugar. I adore it (major comfort food, when served with a good rye bread slathered with butter), but unfortunately, nobody else in my family likes it, so I stopped making it.

Shame nobody liked the soup. Sound delicious to me. I don't keep recipes the family doesn't care for either. I like them but they don't. Thanks for suggestion but since have limited time I will make this ham and chowder. I just hope it fills them up. Thanks jkath. Good to hear from you. Sounds like things are calming down or are they just being pu t on hold till next year? You got recipe for the soup or do you just 'wing' it?

Ham salad for sandwiches...grind together ham, hard-boiled eggs, cheddar cheese, add sweet pickle relish, Miracle Whip and mustard. Mix well and eat on your choice of bread, toasted or not, or crackers...
Ham & Beans for New Year's Day...
Ham & split pea soup, with potatoes and carrots...
Ham and peas in your mac & cheese...
and the great catch-all...fritatta.
