Corn Chowder

This recipe I got from my husband's cousin. It is very yummy! (it's actually the Old Mill's recipe, in Pigeon Forge!)

1 T. margarine
3 c. diced onions
3/4 c. crumbs (from unsalted oyster crackers, which I have used the salted and you could use about any cracker)
1/4 c. flour
2 c. water
1 c. clam juice (never tried to make it without it, but I am sure you could use chicken broth in its place; you can find it though by the canned meat)
2 c. chicken, beef, or ham broth
3 c. diced potatoes
2 c. half and half
2 c. frozen corn, defrosted
1 red and 1 green bell pepper, chopped and sauteed briefly in butter, add salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste

Mix liquids and butter, add potatoes and onions, cook until done. Mix cracker crumbs, flour and seasonings. Add to potatoe mixture. Add red and green peppers, mix well, bring to a boil, add cream and corn, simmer for 15-20 minutes.
