This corn and three onion chowder came about because I’ve been cooking more with leeks lately. It was definitely soup weather and a chowder sounded perfect to me. I had some corn in the freezer, as well as some roasted Hatch green chiles. I also had some leftover steamed sauteed potatoes so I used those up as well but you could just as easily add diced raw potatoes.
Once I had decided to use a leek and a white onion I couldn’t resist the idea of adding yet another kind of allium, so went out to the garden and snipped some fresh chives.
If you like really thick chowder add more potatoes and corn.0
