Spicy Chipotle Creamy Corn Soup

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

You can increase the amounts of chipotle peppers, but beware, they are HOT! My family loves this soup, if you love spicy foods then I urge you to give this a try. Serve this with crusty rolls and butter. Canned chipotle chilies or sometimes called adobo, can be found in any Latin-American markets, or specialty food stores and major grocery food stores in the Mexican section. You might want to double ingredients, this soup is so good!

I had the best Chipotle Corn Chowder when I was in New Mexico a few years back. Ever since then I have tried to recreate the recipe, without success. Then I stumbled across this one and VOILA! It is perfect! The only thing I do differently is that after sauteeing the peppers, garlic, and onion I puree them. I also use skim or 2% milk instead of the whipping cream to make it less fattening.
