A quick and flavorful twist on corn chowder. It was lovely to have a bowl of this chowder on a cold and wintry evening! Thanks for a great recipe!

Great taste and easy to make. If you don't have a lot of time, get Mirepoix (a mix of chopped carrots, onions, and celery) either in the produce or frozen vegetables section. Then you only need to throw everything together, a matter of minutes.

This is excellent. The green chiles really set this version apart from other corn chowders. We absolutely loved the addition of them. Thanks for sharing!
