  • 1 1/2 cups Smithfield ham, diced
  • 4 medium red potatoes, cubed
  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped

  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 3 cups cream-style corn
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cups half-and-half

In a medium stock pot add reserved bacon fat, potatoes, onion, oregano, bacon, and hot sauce. Cook over medium-low heat until onions are translucent. Pour in the chicken stock, corn, and ham. Season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and cover pot. Simmer 20 minutes, stirring frequently, until potatoes are tender.
In a small saucepan, warm the half-and-half but do not boil. Add the warm half and half to the chowder just before serving. Garnish with chopped chives.
