Sweet Corn Chowder With Shrimp and Red Peppers

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 20 mins

This recipe is quick and easy. My boys like it because the shrimp makes them think they are eating "high-style" (their words). I like it because it can be on the table in less than 30 minutes.

Ingredients Nutrition

Awesome! One of the best corn chowders I have ever made!Creamy, chunky and seasoned just right. I used roasted yellow peppers instead of red (although I think red would have been a better choice for looks) and a package of crab/shrimp combination. I would make this one again and again - easily feeds 6 especially with a side of bread or light dessert. And Mary is right, this is quick too! Made for Photo tag.

This is really good and different from ordinary corn chowder. I changed the amounts of the ingredients slightly using what I had for a delicious and easy weeknight supper. Thanks for sharing this keeper!
