Two things inspired me to create this dish; my boss, and my freezing cold body. BRRRRRRR……I just can’t seem to get warm this time of year unless I’m eating or drinking something hot. So it’s nothing but soups and hot coffee for me. If I see anything with ice, I run. Ok I may be exaggerating a bit, but you get what I’m saying…..I’m cold!!!
My boss is an excellent cook. She makes cajun everything! And the best part is, she doesn’t mind sharing her delightful creations she’s made over the weekend with her crew.
One day she came in with a corn chowder that made me like corn. I mean I like corn, but I don’t really choose to eat anything with corn (if that makes any sense). Anyway, she made me love corn again because it was THAT good! I just had to come up with my own version.
What I like most about this recipe is it only takes minutes to make but it tastes like you’ve labored over it in the kitchen for hours. I used canned soups to add flavor and save time. So this is definitely a WEEKNIGHT DINNER WINNER!
Please don’t think you have to go the seafood route with this chowder either. I put shrimp in this version but I think sausage would also work really well. Trust me, I plan to try that next. I mean, it’s chowder! Be spontaneous, surprise yourself, throw in some berries. Wait…. Stop…. That would be gross. My point is to make your own rules. This dish is easy enough it can cater to whatever your taste buds are craving at the moment.
Happy cooking ya’ll! 🙂
