Chipotle Corn Chowder

Chipotle Corn Chowder created by Autumneyes

Chipotle chiles are dried smoked jalapenos that are dark brown in colour, they have a sweet smokey flavor and have lots of heat, use chipotles packed in adobo sauce, adobo sauce is a dark red sauce from ground chiles, with herbs and vinegar added. Chipotles are great to add into any recipe to "kick" it up... for this recipe it really adds so much flavor to the soup! Serving size is only estimated my DS can eat this by himself lol!... This soup is worth making, it is delicious!

  • Cook the bacon in a large saucepan over medium-high heat until crisp, remove and drain on paper towels; set aside (reserve a couple tablespoons of bacon fat).
  • In the same saucepan add in the chopped onion, garlic and celery; saute for about 5 minutes.
  • Add in chicken broth and diced potatoes; bring to a boil, cover and simmer for about 10-12 minutes or until potatoes are slightly tender.
  • Add in red bell pepper, corn, whipping cream and diced chipotle pepper; continue to simmer for 10 minutes, or until veggies are soft.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste (for even more spice season with cayenne).
  • Crumble the reserved cooked bacon and stir into the soup.
  • If the chowder is too thick, adjust with up to 1/4 cup half and half cream or milk and just reheat slightly.

    This was an excellent soup. I doubled the recipe and one DS ate 4 bowls and I must admit I had two. There are about two bowls left after the 4 of us had dinner! I had no celery or bell pepper but will make it again soon with both. Might be yummy with chunks of rotisserie chicken in it. The heat was pretty subtle - maybe add another 1/4 chipotle next time. Thanks so much! Update: Still making and loving this soup. I do add about 3 times the chipotles in adobo sauce called for and I use an immersion blender to get it less chunky. Awesome soup.

    Soup was very tasty. I wasn't sure it was going to be, but was extremely pleased. I've made it twice and the second time, i changed it up a bit. So listed my changes under tweaks.

    I made this delicious chowder for dinner last night and am enjoying the leftovers for lunch today. The only major change was the omission of the bell pepper. The minor changes were simply just not measuring the ingredients so I'm not quite sure how much of any one ingredient I ended up with, although I'm sure it came fairly close. I didn't have quite enough corn, so the potatoes were increased by double. I used one small chipotle which gave flavor and just a bit of spice. Used fingerling potatoes as that's all I had. It didn't thicken up much (although I probably added more liquid than called for) so I added corn starch at the end to thicken it. The taste was great; more importantly, my husband loved it! I love corn chowder and the spice just makes it that much better. This was easy to make and a great winter treat. Thanks for sharing!
