Chorizo corn chowder

I'm not feeling very wordy today-my sinus are killing me-its that lovely death by pollen time of year once again here in the G to the A so I'm in a constant state of blah...dis zoup recipe was good though...try it.
*****I FOUND THIS RECIPE HERE:*******************
Chorizo Corn Chowder
What you need:
2 teaspoons EVOO
5 Chorizo links, skin removed
1 whole medium onion, chopped
1 whole sweet red pepper, seeded & chopped
1 garlic clove, chopped
1 canned Chipotle Pepper in adobo sauce, chopped
1 cup peeled and cubed red potato
2 cups chicken broth
1 1/2 cups frozen corn kernels
1 can creamed corn
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 cup half and half
What you do:
Add 2 teaspoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil to a large dutch oven. Add chorizo and brown approximately 10 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon.
Leave remaining oil in pot and add onion and pepper and saute until tender for approximately 10 minutes.
Add garlic and saute for 2 minutes.Add chipotle, potato and 1/2 cup corn and saute for one minute.
Add back approximately 1/2 cup of crumbled chorizo, cumin, broth and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer covered for 10 minutes or until potato is fork tender.
Add half and half and using a stick blender, blend soup until smooth. Add rest of sausage and corn back to soup and simmer until corn is cooked. Serve with a dollop of sour cream, shredded cheese and/or chopped cilantro.

Changes you might want to make:
I think I would like this a little bit spicier, so next time I might add some jalapeno to mine and maybe a squeeze of lime and some cilantro.

Funny, I have some chorizo and was looking to make something with it. This looks like the perfect dish to make for tonight.

This looks yummy, but of course I would have to use soyrizo. I think the lime and cilantro addition is a good idea and then maybe a spoonful of sour cream. Yum!

Dear Anonymous...

I was surprise dto see a comment on such an old blog. I am usually good about linking back to where I got my recipes from so when I saw your scolding in my email I was shocked.

I had to go back and scan this little barely read blog again because I couldn't believe I hadn't linked back.

So it appears when I did post this 6 months ago I was feeling under the weather so please pardon my foggy brain for not giving YOU your credit for a recipe.

I never claimed the recipe was mine either-I said try this recipe...I have hardly any recipes on here that are mine-I am a lowly suburban housewife with a few friends who visit my blog and we share recipes that we find in cookbooks or on the internet. I'm not really all that creative enough to put together my own recipes but love to cook and try OTHER people's recipes out.

Pardon me for making such an enormous mistake on YOUR behalf. We are all human which makes all of us prone to imperfection and the occassional mistake.

PLEASE note that there is a link to YOUR recipe at the top of this blog post now.

I copy many of the recipes here verbatim, because that's what I do-I try out people's recipes. In no way, sahpe or form was I trying to tkae credit for "YOUR" recipe...many many apologies.
