From the Kitchen... Mexican Corn Chowder


After tasting something similar at a local restaurant, I knew the recipe must be had. An ensuing search online, plus a little concocting, resulted in this tasty soup. Enjoy!


Mexican Corn Chowder


3 Tbsp. butter

1 c. onion, diced

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 c. red bell pepper, diced

2 poblano peppers; roasted, seeded and diced

2 cooked boneless skinless chicken breasts, diced


In small stockpot saute onion, garlic, and bell peppers in butter until tender. Add poblanos and diced chicken.


2 tsp. chicken base
1 c. hot water


Dissolve chicken base in water and add to pot.


1 tsp. oregano leaves

1/2 tsp. cumin
1/2- 1 tsp. salt, to taste

1 pint half and half

1 can corn, drained


Add to pot and heat through.


1 lb. grated monterey jack cheese


Add to soup and stir until melted. Serve immediately.


*Alternative- Sprinkle cheese on top of each individual bowl of soup. (I think this way looks nicer.)

*May be diluted with milk or thickened with potato flakes according to preference.
