Spicy Corn Chowder #MeatlessMonday

Jump to Recipe

Cold fall nights need warm bowls of soup to shake the chill from your bones. A big bowl of this Spicy Corn Chowder will do just that for you!. Adding leeks and potatoes to the pot help to make it a more substantial chowder. This lends it to a perfect Meatless Monday dish.

Spicy Corn Chowder

My family didn’t even realize they didn’t get meat for dinner until I told them afterwards. Sometimes when I try to sneak a meatless meal passed them – they are all hungry after. But this go around – they were all full and happy with their dinner. If you want to try some other dishes for #MeatlessMonday – check out these posts – #MeatlessMonday.

Of course you could also add some grilled chicken on the side or maybe serve it with some bacon or ham thrown in the mix too! I served it with some Keto Cheddar Biscuits (which is basically eggs and cheese). You could go for a soup and salad night and serve it with a nice green salad.

Now Let’s Get Cookin’!

I am a lot of things – wife, mother, daughter, sister, niece, friend, business owner, volunteer, and a home chef. I have lived in the Pacific Northwest for most of my adult life and plan to stay forever – while traveling a lot. I am currently running a General Contracting business with my husband out of our home. Between us we have 6 kids in our blended family, 4 of which live with us full-time. We are a highly active family during the week – sports, bands, dance classes – as well as on the weekend – camping, hiking, car shows, and concerts. We like to go go go, but when it comes to dinnertime, we mostly like to dine-in! I love to create things with my hands and have probably tried almost every craft out there at least once or twice. Cooking is a huge part of my life. No matter what anyone says – you can taste the difference in the food if it was made with love. Some of the simplest meals can be elevated so much when they are cooked with care. Pouring love into the meals I create brings a feeling of fulfillment and satisfaction, not only to me, but to the people I care about.
