You can't go wrong with our Chicken Corn Chowder. Between the bacon, potatoes, peppers, tomatoes, and fresh corn, this is a recipe truly for soup lovers. Regular chowder makes a comforting cool weather meal, but this recipe gets a boost by adding cooked chicken. You can purchase rotisserie chicken or smoked chicken (without the sauce) from a local barbecue joint. For a twist, substitute grilled shrimp for the smoked chicken. Take full advantage of the abundance of fresh corn available at farmers' markets. The natural sweetness and versatility of corn add flavor to just about anything. This chowder is great for any season—use fresh corn in summertime or frozen in winter. We love this soup because it’s packed with tender chicken and corn, and the Monterey Jack cheese provides a delightful flavor. The heavy cream cheese also gives it this rich, milky flavor, with the potatoes adding to its thickness. For more of a kick, leave the seeds in the jalapeño. This is just one of those classic dishes that screams comfort food.
