Quick Corn Chowder

If you have a yummy, healthy recipe you are obligated to share it, right?
This chowder is just that- yummy and healthy. Plus it takes less than 30 minutes so that’s winning. I’m a big soup fan, especially during the Fall/Winter months, nothing like warming up from the inside out!
This chowder is creamy, spicy and full of veggies. I hope you like it!
