This is the best Corn Chowder I have ever made. I wrote the recipe as it is written in The New Basics Cookbook, but I do add more cilantro at the end. My husband cannot get enough of this chowder. We do use fresh corn off the cob, so as soon as he sees it is in, he wants this chowder! An updated version of an Old West favorite _ this is loaded with corn! The red pepper and cilantro give it a fresh new taste.
