Smokey Corn Chowder

Any of these ingredients can be adjusted to your family's tastes.

I usually double this recipe and freeze half of it for another day.

Adding the cream to each bowl allows for easier freezing and you can adjust for a more/less creamy soup.

The real secret ingredients in this soup are the red pepper and liquid smoke.
