Corn Chowder

I have never had corn chowder before but thought it'd be good to give it a whirl! This was really good!

3 strips bacon, chopped
1 onion diced
1 jalapeno, seeded and diced
1/4 c all purpose flour
1 32 oz chicken stock
2 russet potatoes, diced
1/2 tsp salt
1 pkg frozen corn
1 cup milk
3 TB half and half
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 TB fresh cilantro (chopped)

In large saucepan brown bacon until crispy.  Remove bacon to paper towel.  To the grease  add onion and jalapeno and cook about 5 minutes.  Add flour, cook 1 more minute.  Add broth, potatoes, and salt. Bring to boil, cover, reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are softened (12 minutes or so).  Add corn, milk, half & half and cook another minute.  Remove from heat and stir in cheese and cilantro.  Sprinkle with bacon!
