I absolutely love the green chile corn chowder soup they have at Sweet Tomatoes, so I found this recipe to suffice my cravings. I like roasting the corn and chiles before adding them to the soup. I do this by throwing them into the oven at 450 degrees for 20 - 30 minutes, or until the skins of the peppers start charring and wilting, and the corn browns. I enjoy poblano and anaheim peppers in this recipe. This is a filling soup, but pairs nicely with grilled salmon.
