Spicy and sweet - a delicious twist on traditional corn chowder. From Joe Simmer's Creole Slow Cookin' cookbook with a few changes for our tastes. I often dice the vegetables (except carrots and potatoes which I chop while the bacon is cooking) the day before cooking to save time. It's a lot of chopping but sooooo worth it! Enjoy!
