Notes

  • Onion: Use yellow, white, or sweet onion. 
  • Bell pepper: The recipe calls for red, but you can use yellow or orange instead. 
  • Potatoes: Use waxy potatoes like Yukon gold or red potatoes. 
  • Chicken: Feel free to use shredded rotisserie chicken.
  • Almond milk: You can substitute it with regular milk if you do not eat dairy-free. 
  • Garnish options: You can add crispy turkey bacon bits on the top, shredded cheddar cheese, a bit of honey to add sweetness, or some sliced jalapeños to add a spicy kick.
  • Storing: This corn chowder will last in the fridge in a sealed container for 3-4 days.
