Chipotle Corn and Potato Chowder

Chipotle Corn & Potato Chowder

I have a spicy soup recipe today for Chipotle Corn & Potato Chowder. It’s a simple but satisfying soup brimming with pieces of potato and corn. The chipotle pepper gives it a lingering heat that adds a nicely robust flavor without overwhelming you. It’s thick, creamy and a little bit sweet from the cream-style corn. Half-way through some of the potatoes are removed, pureed and added back in to thicken it even further.

It’s a breeze to make and you probably have everything in your cupboard to make it right now. It’s hearty and totally comforting, perfect to curl up with on a cool Spring night.
