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’!
