I have ALWAYS made chicken and vegetable and chicken noodle soups.  I’ve probably made them so much in the past that it could be the reason why my family started looking towards can soups for more variety.  I’m not against the canned variety at all, but my poor chicken noodle was feeling abandoned, left in the dirt, not appreciated any longer!  Things had to change when my husband got the kids a can of chicken corn chowder one day and they LOVED it.  It was time for a soup makeover so maybe, just maybe, I wouldn’t hear these words again…”chicken again mom?!?!” or “oh, soup again”  Oh, who am I kidding, I still hear that.

So if the family likes chicken and corn in a chowder, then I will make it for them from scratch and see what turns out.  Actually, the recipe is very simple (as is the norm for me) and it turned out great.  I’m happy to say that people went to the pot for seconds and thirds.

My husband likes a little “kick” as he puts it, in his food.  Usually I try to spice things up a little bit for him while keeping it mild enough for the kiddos.  The basic ingredients in this chowder calls for chicken, potatoes, corn and onions.  I added some red pepper and jalapenos for a little extra color and kick.
