Healthy. Hearty. Heartwarming. The Chilli corn chowder is all of this and even more. This American dish is considered as the ultimate comfort food. Fresh corn, right from the corn on the cob is what gives it that ultimate taste. And the variations that one can try with it are endless and limitless. Simply put, Corn Chowder is a thick soup that has a good bite to it thanks to the addition of veggies, corn kernels, and even bacon. The spicing is fairly simple and the addition of cheese lends it a good amount of robustness.
