Chicken Corn Chowder

My new favorite healthy soup recipe!  This stuff hit the spot big time this past week as we had our first snow here in the valley.  And at only 7 WW points plus per cup, it kept me full for a few days after, too, with the leftovers.  Love this stuff!!  John even loved it, too, and said it didn't taste "healthy" at all:).

{What you need}
1 TB butter
1 small chopped onion
1 cup chopped carrots
1 can diced green chilies
2 TB flour
3 cups milk
2 cups cooked chicken, cubed
1 can corn
1 can creamed corn
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp salt

Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat.  Add onions and carrots.  Cook until carrots are tender-crisp, about 10 minutes.  Add flour, cook while continually stirring for one minute.  Slowly add milk and stir until slightly thickened.  Incorporate the remaining ingredients, and stir until heated through.  Top with sour cream or mozzarella cheese (will add to the points value, though).
