Recipe Serves: 6

1. Cook potatoes in 1 quart salted water until tender. In separate pan, sauté onions, peppers, celery, cumin, and butter until onions are translucent and tender, about 5 minutes. Add sage, salt, pepper, and flour and cook until pasty, about 1 to 2 minutes, stirring continuously to prevent the flour from burning.

2. Add one cup of the potato water to the onion mixture and stir with a whisk until combined. Add the potatoes and remaining potato water and cook for 3 minutes. Add milk and corn, bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and let simmer for 15 minutes.

3. To serve, garnish with shredded cheddar cheese and/or finely chopped green onions.
