Chorizo Corn Chowder
Have you entered the MINOR’S® Soup Recipe Contest? If not, challenge my chorizo corn chowder! Read on to get the inspiration behind my recipe.
I love chowders—and corn is one of my favorites. Chowder, at its best, should be comfort food. If you use subpar ingredients, no amount of seasoning, spice or salt will create that true just-like-grandma-used-to-make taste. In my twist on corn chowder, I wanted to consider ingredients that would help highlight the natural sweetness of the fresh corn. I came up with shrimp stock, chorizo, red chile and roasted garlic to play up the comfort and flavor factor.
With the abundance of corn at its highest quality from late summer through late fall, corn chowder is the perfect seasonal addition to your menu. Explore the possibilities for yourself and good luck if you’re joining the battle for Bocuse d’Or!
