People of South Africa. Calm down, just a bit. Even though we had a little glimpse of Spring, winter has not left us yet.
Only saying this, because I’ve had this Corn and Chorizo Chowder recipe in my drafts folder for over a month now… Time to shine, Corn.
This recipe of Corn and Chorizo Chowder is the epitome of comfort food. Sure, any old bowl of soup can satisfy a frozen body, but here it is ALL about the intensity of flavor.
Smoky and spicy notes comes through from the chorizo and is balanced beautifully with the sweetness from the corn. Chili is an absolute MUST. Nothing warms you up quite like it, right?
This hearty bowl of chowder also contains perfectly cooked potatoes, some carrots and a whole lot of dairy goodness. I also added fresh mint to the final dish for that kick of freshness.
To serve, you will only need a loaf of crusty bread and some sour cream to finish it off. Bowl slurping, plate licking goodness!
This Corn and Chorizo Chowder freezes like an absolute dream, so go ahead and cook your heart out. There will be plenty to share! Get the last of your soup fix in before the season has passed – check out my collection of soup recipes, k?
