Quick, easy, and with a smoky, sweet flavor……if this sounds good to you Spicy Sweet Corn Chowder is for you!
Sometimes the best laid plans don’t come to be. My nephew and his girlfriend were going to come for dinner Friday night. Steaks, potatoes, and sweet corn. Well it didn’t work out as we planned 🙁
