Corn Chowder with Chile, Lime, and Cotija
“I have no argument with traditional corn chowder — it has cream, bacon, and potatoes and thus would be impossible not to love as soup or salad — but I adore to the point of boring everyone around me with my gushing, Mexican-style corn either elote-style (on the the cob rolled in butter, mayo, lime juice and coated with salty crumbled cotija cheese and chile powder or a chile-lime seasoning blend) or esquites-style (all of the above, but in a cup). This corn chowder attempts to celebrate the best of both.”
I’m so excited to dive face-first into soup season, and this fantastic corn chowder was the first one to be made. Sure, regular corn chowder is great, but this Mexican street corn style chowder is stupendous! It’s so full of flavor, and the addition on lime adds a nice brightness while the salty cotija cheese is simply bomb.
