Cheddar Corn and Potato Chowder

Fall is coming. The weather is Massachusetts is barely in the 60's today. What better time to make chowder.
Cheddar Corn and Potato Chowder
3 tablespoons butter
1 onion, chopped
3 tablespoon flour
2 1/2 cup diced potatoes 
2 cups frozen or fresh cooked corn
2/3 cup milk
1 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
In a saucepan melt butter and sauté onion for about 5 minutes, until tender. Add in flour, mixing well to coat the onion. Add broth and bring to a boil, whisking until smooth. Reduce heat, add potatoes and simmer 20 minutes until tender. Add the corn and milk. Cook 5 minutes longer, remove from heat and stir in cheddar cheese. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
