Choctaw Corn Chowder

October 26, 2014 | 3 Comments

Welcome to week 42 of Reddit’s 52 Weeks of Cooking Challenge. This week’s theme is Native American. As we move farther into Autumn and coming around the corner to Winter, these days are rainy and chilly. Perfect weather for a chowder.

Lots of sweet and hot peppers  as well as fresh and dried herbs make this chowder extremely flavorful, as well as quite pretty.

We all know Winter is coming and we are going to be knees deep in root vegetables soon. Feel free to add chunks of squash, parsnip, carrots, or other root vegetables in the place of the potatoes for an equally comforting, hearty stew.  Hope your family enjoys this recipe, and you  include this quick and easy chowder in your meal plan all through the season.

    You neglected to tell your loyal readers that you are part Choctaw, is that why you chose this dish?
