I love creamy soups. They’re just so comforting and warming!
This is a pretty basic corn chowder, except taken to the next level of goodness.
I found this recipe, but it involved jalapeños and other peppers as well. I decided I wanted to try it with green chiles. Mostly because I had green chiles (I always have green chiles on hand), but also because I knew it was going to be great. And I was right. (Jodi would use the canned green chilies because neither of us is into spicy foods! If you’re into hot, hot, hot, use jalapenos or the chile of your choice!)
It’s creamy and spicy and full of warm, filling numminess. Was that enough adjectives for you? I hope so.
This was truly delicious. My whole family loved it and it reheated really well the next day.

As you waste your breath complaining about life, someone out there is breathing their last.
Appreciate what you have.
Be thankful and stop complaining.
Live more, complain less.
Have more smiles, less stress.
