  3. Add the contents of the corn bowl, crushed red pepper, nutmeg, potatoes, salt and pepper, and chicken stock. Cover pot and bring the contents to a slight boil, cooking for 15-20 minutes.
  4. In a glass cup or other small vessel, mix the cornstarch with 2 Tbsp warm water and add to the pot, stirring to incorporate.
  5. Next add the cream to the chowder, stir, cover, and turn off heat source. Let chowder sit for 15-20 minutes before serving.
