Call Me Corny for Chowder

Today’s recipe is a quick, delicious and hearty meal. Due to San Marcos’s rainy weather and the over abundance of food I devoured this previous weekend, Monday definitely calls for a flavorful and simple comfort soup. This chowder can be made in roughly 30 minutes or less, is creamy, sweet and low in fat (Que cheering).
