Favorite Sweet Potato and Corn Chowder

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Denni2

I started making this after my husband fell in love with a sweet potato corn hash at one of our favorite restaurants. One cold rainy evening he asked for a pot of soup for dinner. I wanted something different so I made this soup and now he asks for it quite often. May subsitute Chicken broth for the vegtable broth.

Really enjoyed making this chowder, but do admit that I cut way, way back on the use of cayenne ~ Hot-hot is way too much for me, so I go for sorta-hot when I can, although I'm sure what I consider really hot, for others might well be just slightly so! Nevertheless, we did enjoy this chowder for lunch the other day & will happily make it again! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in New Kids on the Block tag]
