Cheddar Corn Chowder

Over Christmas, we were at my parents' house and I was looking through all of her old holiday Taste of Home cookbooks.  I bookmarked a few to try and looked them up online.  (I think all TOH recipes are online now.)  I made this when we got back home and it was a good, simple, quick soup for winter.  I love different variations on Corn Chowder.
