    This is a great stand alone lunch with some Cheesy Bread on the side. Or it is a nice side to a lower cal chicken or fish dinner. The hint of cayenne adds a nice unexpected flavor dimension to the chowder.

    Corn Chowder

    Corn Chowder

    6 servings
    155 calories per serving

    1 c chopped onion
    1 leek, cleaned and chopped
    5 c frozen corn
    28 oz. chicken broth
    1 medium red bell pepper, chopped
    ¼ t cayenne pepper
    Salt and pepper to taste
    Snipped chives for garnish
    Pam

    Spray a Dutch oven with Pam and heat on medium and cook onion and leek 5 minutes or until tender. If the onions start to get dry or crispy, add up to 3T of hot water to make sure they stay nice and moist. Then add corn and cook 5-6 minutes. Add half the broth and heat to boiling then reduce heat, cover and simmer 20 minutes. Remove from heat and cool slightly. Transfer half the corn mix to a blender and process until smooth. Return to the pan and add the rest of the broth, peppers, black pepper, cayenne pepper, and salt and heat through. Garnish with chives.
