Happy National Homemade Soup Day!

Happy National Homemade Soup Day! Last Friday, I celebrated National Blueberry Pancake Day. Well, this week I am celebrating National Homemade Soup Day!

You could say that I have had a “Souper” week (yes I had to make the joke). With my Souper Bowl falling in the same week as National Home Made Soup Day, I have already made a Beer Bacon and cheese soup to represent the Green Packers, and a hearty and delicious chili for the Pittsburgh Steelers!

Today, I am bringing you a delicious Roasted Chicken and Corn Chowder that is sure to leave you full and satisfied. This creamy chowder is loaded with tender roasted chicken, crisp corn, red and Anaheim peppers, and chunks of new potatoes!

I enjoy eating my chowder with cornbread mini muffins.


Roasted Chicken and Corn Chowder Soup

4tbsp unsalted butter

1 medium sweet onion, chopped

1 red bell pepper, chopped

1 Anaheim chili pepper, seeded and chopped

1 12oz bag frozen corn kernels (divided in half)

2-3 tsp kosher salt

1 tsp cracked black pepper

1/4 tsp ground cumin

1/4 tsp dried thyme

4 cups chicken broth

4-6 new potatoes cut into 1/2 inch cubes

1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream

2 tbsp corn starch

2-3 tsp kosher salt

5-10 drops Tabasco( more or less based on taste)

2-3 cups roasted chicken breast ( torn or cut into bite size pieces)

In a large pot over medium heat, melt butter.

Add onions, bell pepper, and Anaheim peppers. Cook while stirring for about 5 minutes until softened.

Add half bag of corn, salt, pepper, cumin, and thyme. Stir.

Add chicken broth.

Stir and add new potatoes.

In a blender, puree cream, remaining half of corn, and cornstarch.

Pour puree into soup. Stir.

Add roasted chicken to the soup.

Season with Tabasco and additional salt and pepper if necessary.

Bring to a simmer and cook for 30minutes while stirring every few minutes.

Serve or refrigerate for later use.



Given the extreme conditions that are covering the country, I couldn’t think of a better way to combat the cold weather than a bowl of homemade soup! Have a great Super or Souper Bowl weekend! Happy National Homemade Soup Day!

    Looks Amazing! I was thinking about making your chili but I might be changing my mind! Thanks for the recipe

    I’m pretty sure National Homemade Soup Day was invented in my honor. I love love love soup. I could eat it 3 meals a day. I even eat a steamy bowl of soup on a hot summer day.

    I love your versions! Yum! :)

    Where do people find out about all these “food days”? I guess today is “World Nutella Day”? I really would like to know, so I can participate in all the fun!!! Corn Chowder has recently become one of my favorite soups and yours sounds delicious.

    I’m glad the Superbowl teams turned out with this match-up. You’ve made the perfect soups in the game’s honor. And then THIS one. Wow. If you ever make it down to Gainesville in the fall, I might just make you cook for me.

    I didn’t have any chicken on hand so I threw in a pound of frozen shrimp instead. So great! Your site is lovely. Thanks for the recipe!

    Hello Taylor! I’ve been enjoying your blog for a while and have linked to your recipes in the past. I was curious, have you ever participated in a blog hop? We’d love it if you came and checked ours out tomorrow, the theme is favorite Winter Warm-Up recipes. I think this chowder would be the perfect recipe to show off, our readers would love it! Anyway, it’s a great way to get some link love.

    This link goes to the hop and it will be live at midnight:

    Hope to see you there, take care,

    stumbled upon this recipe on foodgawker and picked up the ingredients at the store right away– The soup is simmering as I write and I can’t wait to try it tomorrow, just in time for football Sunday!
