Vegan Southwest Potato Corn Chowder To Warm Up Your Soul

by | December 28, 2018

There are tons of body warming cuisines to choose from these days, but nothing soothes the soul more than a creamy bowl of soup. You really can’t go wrong especially with ones that are filled with a heaping serving of soft potatoes and sweet corn. The southwest flavors of this potato corn chowder are always a great combination especially topped with vegan cheese to make it extra rich. This soup doesn’t have much heat and is mild, but if you prefer a little kick of spice you can definitely amp that up with adding a few of the jalapeno seeds. This recipe is obviously paired perfectly with crispy tortilla chips and I highly recommend topping it with green onion and cilantro for a fresh crisp flavor.
