Corn Chilies and Chicken Chowder

Corn and Green Chilies are one of the flavor combinations that our family just loves and with that just add a little chicken then we have a delicious chowder. I would like to say it is a great chowder for cold weather, but this one is great the year around. I am using the wonderful fresh corn that I put up for the freezer this summer, along with the roasted green chilies. Those fresh vegetables from the summer are priceless in the winter months. This is a thick stick to your ribs chowder or can be thinned down to make it more like a soup. Which ever way you prefer this is a fabulous blend of flavor. You will definitely want to try this recipe.
