Creamy Corn and Ham Soup

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure policy.

Today, I have a recipe for you so you will be already to use up that leftover Easter ham. It is a simple creamy corn and ham soup. The dill is what makes this chowder extra yummy. If you have fresh dill, that would be excellent. If not, dried dill weed works just fine. That is what I used.

In a large pot, you add in some chicken broth, corn, half-and-half, onion and red pepper and bring to a boil. In a bowl, you whisk together some flour, water, salt and pepper until smooth. Then gradually stir into the broth mixture. Next you bring it to a boil.

Once you have that boil, cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Now it’s time to mix in the ham. Reduce it to a simmer and cook for 10-15 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Garnish servings with dill if desired.

If you want even more recipes for easter leftovers, I put together a round up post last year that you can check out. It also includes recipe for those hard boiled eggs.

  1. Did it as per the first time found to have an over powering onion taste. Left out onions second time and used cream corn instead, family likes it so much that I have to double the batch now

  2. Thank you Laura! I made this one after Easter and the entire family loved it (a rare occasion). Then last night we had some pork so we’re going to dice up the leftovers and try it in this. I hope it turns out good 🙂
