Kris' corn chowder

This recipe came from my friend Kris, who is a fabulous cook. I am a huge soup fan and am always looking for new recipes. This is a perfect soup for those cold rainy Oregon days! (Or cold rainy days anywhere!)

6 slices bacon
1 onion
1 large green pepper
2-3 tbsp flour
3 1/2 c. chicken broth
1 c. dry white wine or sherry
3 c. corn
1 large potato, cubed or grated
1 c. heavy cream or half-n-half

Fry bacon, remove from pan then add onion and pepper to the bacon fat and saute. Transfer to a large stock pot and sprinkly with flour. Add wine, reduce by half. Add broth and let thicken. Add potato and corn, cook until potatoes are done. Add bacon back in...add cream. Stir and enjoy.
