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.
