Semi Homemade Mexican Corn Chowder | An explosion of flavors and super easy to make! That’s how I would describe this chowder. Perfect for using leftover roasted chicken or a rotisserie chicken from your grocery store deli. Warm your insides and bring Mexican flavors to your dinner table.
A soup for all seasons! Make this delicious soup when fresh corn on the cob is at it’s peak or freeze the corn for later. I didn’t have any fresh corn left in my freezer so I used canned. Canned corn is one of the few canned vegetables that keeps it’s texture and flavor. Save this recipe for Fiesta Time!
