Pantry Vegetarian Chowder

If I recall correctly, this came from a package of dried beans. It's rich comfort food that isn't really too awfully bad for you as most things in the "comfort" category are. You could certainly substitute canned beans for the cooked dried beans and get the same result. (If you do, don't add any salt, as canned beans are already salted.) Time for preparation assumes dried beans and excludes the pre-soaking time of 24 hours. You can use 1-2 cups frozen corn instead of canned if you prefer. Two cans evaporated milk almost makes 3 cups. I use that and add half and half to make the 3 cups. I like to garnish this with some plain corn tortilla chips.
