Corn and Cheddar Chowder

14 Apr

Corn and Cheddar Chowder is hearty enough to be a meal on its own, but still makes an excellent spring and summer soup.  Highlight seasonal corn in a whole new way.

If you couldn’t tell by now, I am a soup lover.  I love trying out new soups, finding new ways to delicately simmer ingredients until their flavors meld together.  With Spring in full bloom and Summer just around the corner, soon grocery stores and farmers markets will be flooded with local sweet corn.  What better way to celebrate the great corn harvest, then to make and amazing Corn and Cheddar Chowder.

Corn and Cheddar Chowder is hearty enough to be a meal on its own, but still makes an excellent spring and summer soup.  The corn gives Corn and Cheddar Chowder a nice sweet flavor, and even though it is considered a chowder, it is light enough to be served on warm days.  One of the things I really enjoy about Corn and Cheddar Chowder, is how quickly you can whip this up.  Many soups can take hour to make, needing to simmer for long periods of time to properly marry the flavors together.  This chowder can be made very fast, in less time then many other meals.  Who says you have to works all day to make an awesome soup?

Be sure to add Corn and Cheddar Chowder to your menu this upcoming season.

    I love the ingredients in this chowder. Especially the cheddar cheese. I also like to grate a bit of Gruyere into it. My boyfriend loves it!!!
