    Starrynews's Note:

    A warm, filling soup with a zip – great for cold weather! If you prefer a little less spicy heat, feel free to reduce the cayenne pepper to your taste.

      I wasn't too sure if I was going to like this as much as I did. Adding a small amount of chipotle powder and Spanish smoked paprika took the chowder to the next level. Served with cornbread-this was a satisfying mid-week meal. Reviewed for Veg Tag/March. Skipped the tomatoes on top (yucky this time of year) and replaced cheddar with a little bit of freshly grated Parmesan. Thanks, Starry!

      This was such an exciting soup for me to make as I have never made a chowder before. Usually my soups are always tomato based. I loved the quinoa in this and the 2 children of mine that had this tonight for dinner were really enthusiastic about it. I adorned mine with avocado and diced tomato. I cannot get poblano chile here so used a green pepper. Great Sunday night meal !!

      I loved the corn and milk with the heat from the cayenne and chilli powder in this wonderful chowder. They gave just the right amount of heat. I was worried about the cumin, but it was spot on. The chowder is thick, filling, creamy, delish, comforting, colourful and healthy! I used the garnish, but basil in place of cilantro as I cant stand the latter. YUMMO, thumbs up!
      I made half the recipe using a green bell peppe in place of the poblano because I couldnt get that here and I made my own broth.
      THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing your creation and good luck in the contest!
      Made and reviewed for Craze-E Fall 2011.
