when I say “chowder”, you probably don’t think “healthy”! Most chowders and NOT healthy…they are delicious, they are decadent, they are creamy…and so is this one…but this one IS healthy! Sweet corn, creamy potatoes, protein packed chicken…the perfect meal all in one bowl!
As you can probably tell, Gavin and I have been in the mood for warm and yummy soups- if October was pumpkin month, I’d say November is soup month! So, grab a bowl and a cozy blanket- and enjoy!
Pablano Corn Chowder
2 Cups pablano pepper, diced
2 Cups onion, diced
1 Cup potatoes, peeled and diced
2 Cups chicken breast, cut into small cubes
2 cans cream style corn
1 can whole kernel corn
1 can low sodium, fat free chicken broth
1 t garlic powder
1/2 t cumin powder
1 t salt
1/2 C milk (optional)
In a large pot, over medium heat, sautee the peppers, onions and potatoes for about 4 minutes. Then add the chicken and cook for another 4 minutes. Now, pour in the cans of corn, the chicken broth, garlic powder, cumin, and salt. Bring back up to a boil. Once the pot is boiling, turn the heat to low, cover, and allow to cook for at least 45 minutes, stirring (and scraping the bottom of the pot) ever 15 minutes.
