Leftover Mashed Potato Corn Chowder

Welcome to the second Food Friday! I'm trying to do these about every 2-3 weeks!

One night we had beef au jus sandwiches for dinner with a side of corn and mashed potatoes. Ended up making far too much mashed potatoes, and I thought it would be great to turn it into potato chowder. So today I searched for recipes. I found a couple that sounded alright and kinda put bits of this together with bits of that to come up with some seriously delicious chowder!

 Left over mashed potato and corn chowder:
2 cans of chicken broth
1 can of creamed corn
1 can of whole kernel corn (drained)
2 cans of diced white potatoes (drained)
3-4 cups of left over mashed potatoes
7 slices of bacon
4-5 cloves grated garlic (to taste)
dried parsley flakes (to taste)
salt (to taste)
paprika (to taste)
dried basil (to taste)
celery seasoning (not celery salt) (to taste)

In a large pot put in the two cans of chicken broth and start heating up. Spoon in left over mashed potatoes. Thoroughly mix together with chicken broth. Add milk, water, and butter to make a full, smooth consistency. Add in cans of corn, creamed corn, and diced white potatoes and stir. Cut slices of bacon into mixture. Grate cloves of garlic into mixture. Add about 3 tablespoons of parsley, a 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 1 teaspoon of paprika, 1/2 teaspoon of celery seasoning, and 2 teaspoons of basil. Stir and taste. All measurements are guestimates since I just sprinkled a bunch in until it looked yummy, then stirred and taste tested and added what seemed good until it tasted right.
It should look something like this:

Mashed Potato Corn Chowder
And it should taste ohhhhh sooooo yummy!!! Enjoy it! :-D
This much should feed about 8 people give or take ... The leftovers we have are in the freezer waiting for us to enjoy them another day! :)
