2 quarts half and half

3 oz corn starch

Heat oil in 12 quarts stockpot, sauté onions until golden add the garlic and sauté for 1 minute.

Add half and half, potatoes, chicken base, white pepper-cook for 10 to 15 minutes over medium heat.

Add chicken breast, green chile, corn kernels, and red bell pepper, reduce heat to medium-low and cook until the potatoes are fork-tender.

In a small bowl make a slurry with the corn starch and ½ cup water.

Bring to a boil and whisk the slurry into the pot until the soup is slightly thick.
