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.

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!
