Oh yeah, this definitely qualifies as chowder. Thick and filling! (that's what she said)
May not be the most pretty thing to look at....
...but very good. Recipe is as follows:
Corn chowder with Sweet Chili
2 cloves of garlic
½ red chili
About 2 tablespoons of butter
600 grams och corn (or about two cans)
1 deciliter of liquid vegetable bouillon
½ deciliter of sweet chili sauce
salt and pepper
5 deciliters of water
200 grams of Philadelphia cream cheese.
Peel and chop the onion and garlic. De-seed and chop the chili. Fry in the butter for a few minutes. Peel and cut the potatoes into small bits, then put them and the corn in the pot. Add the bouillon. Let simmer for about 15 minutes or until the potatoes are soft.
Run the soup through a mixer or use a staff mixer until it is smooth. Stir in the sweet chili sauce, the water and the cream cheese. then heat the soup again and taste with salt and pepper. Enjoy
And no, it is not the most healthy thing in the world. But it's so filling it doesn't really matter.
