A seafood chowder with a tropical accent. Scotch Bonnet chiles are very hot, so use Serrano or jalapeno if you like a milder taste. Also use only UNSWEETENED coconut milk in the can, not the carton stuff in the dairy section. WARNING: Use latex gloves to seed chiles, since seeds contain volatile oils, which can get on fingers, and then in eyes or on lips and burn like H***! :)
