I know I have professed my love of soups before, but dang, they are just so perfect for winter dinners. Especially when the temperatures outside are making even the polar bears shiver. Sitting down to a warm bowl of this Smokey Corn Chowder and some homemade rolls is a delightful way to end a dreary cold day. Trust me. Recipe inspired by Mel's Kitchen.
My kids are all huge fans of corn chowder, and it is the perfect last minute soup because there is no chicken or beef to defrost. Which I often forget to do. Why is it so dang hard to remember to grab a packet of meat out of the freezer before 5 pm?
This smokey corn chowder has a little bit of a kick to it, and I adored the slightly smokey flavor from the smoked paprika. It is a fabulous addition to many recipes, so I recommend having some in your spice collection. You can add more red pepper flakes if you like more heat. We have a four year old, so I have to keep things pretty tame.
This chowder is hearty, delicious, and easy to make. It doesn’t get much better, does it?
