    Lizzie-Babette's Note:

    Spicy chowder that's different from all the rest - why? It's the chipotle peppers and roasted corn. If you're not crazy about spices, you can start off with just a hint of the chipotle and jalapeño and add more later, if you like. This is one of our favorite recipes; I even served this to my boss and my boss' boss when they came to my home for a departmental cookout (nervy, huh?)! Adapted from a Gourmet recipe.

    • 3 -6 minced garlic cloves

    • 1/2 chipotle chile, minced fine (as many as you can handle, keep the rubber gloves on to mince these!)

    • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
    • 3 cups chicken broth

    • 1 (15 ounce) can diced tomatoes, well-drained (or 3 - 5 fresh roma tomatoes, diced)
    • 2 cups fresh corn (for extra smokiness, roast the corn before adding to the chowder) or 2 cups frozen corn (for extra smokiness, roast the corn before adding to the chowder)
    • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
    • 2 diced boneless smoked chicken breasts (discard skin and fat, (or more, if you want, We smoke our own, but you can buy smoked chicken breast)

      NOTE: The original recipe called for Monterey Jack cheese, and although I love cheese, I just didn't like it with this recipe, but if you want to try it with cheese, enjoy!

      If you want to try something different. Something spicey....try this. It was wonderful, and we really enjoyed it. I used 2 chipotles because my jalapeno was rather small. I used frozen corn (fresh roasted was not an option now). I bought the smoked chicken at the supermarked deli, and it was good, but homemade will be the way I do it next time. All of the flavors worked together. It was spicey, smokey, and creamy. I will definately be making this again. Thanks for sharing!

      You directions are very simple to follow. That in itself made making this recipe a snap! I couldn't find smoked chicken and I couldn't get my idea for homemade to work so I used smoked turkey breast. I also used 1 1/2 fresh jalapenos, about 4 or 5 chipotles and I didn't drain my tomatoes. I ate a bowl of it plain, then stirred in a few slices of pepperjack cheese and about a tablespoon of finely chopped cilantro. The soup was really awesome without the changes and that is what I am basing the 5 stars on. (although it was really good with the changes too) I only have one little complaint that is easily fixed. I think 1/4 cup oil is a bit much. I had a thin layer of it floating on top of the soup during cookng. I think I will cut the oil back to about 2 tablespoons. Other than that,this a very spicy, soul warming soup that I will make for many many years to come. Thanks for posting it

      This is my new fave chicken chowder. I made half a batch since only two of use were eating it. Increased the chipotles to 1 1/2 with a tsp of adobo since I didn't have any jalepenos- and I am a wuss yet it wasn't too spicy for me. I also cut the oil down to 2 tbsp and when it was time to put the flour in I added about 1/2 cup of broth first and heated that up, then added the flour slowly. Only other change I made was to top with a tiny bit of smoked cheddar cheese. I think next time I make this I may add a few slices of smoked bacon to the pot before I cook the onions. This is soooooo good, I love it! Creamy, savory, perfect blending of flavors, definitely boss worthy!
