Sharing is caring!

Spicy Chicken and Corn Chowder is loaded with chunks of chicken and lots of corn in a thick cream-based broth that’s full of spicy, smoky flavor. Serve with some crusty bread for a filling and hearty cold weather meal.

Crushed red pepper flakes and a jalapeno add plenty of heat to this delicious soup. You can vary the heat by the amount of red pepper flakes you add.

A full tablespoon of paprika really flavors this chowder up and adds some smokiness, plus it gives it a pretty reddish hue.

Spicy Chicken and Corn Chowder is thickened by a roux which gives it that thick and hearty chowder texture.

I’ve used frozen corn, but fresh or canned would work instead. For convenience, I use the meat off of a rotisserie chicken, but you could also poach 2 or 3 chicken breasts to use.  Leftover Thanksgiving turkey could be used instead of chicken for this recipe.

  1. Made this today. Used rotisserie chicken breast. I also added a little bit of Better than Bouillon chicken base. I also added a little water , maybe a cup and a half. So delicious on this cold rainy fall day.

  2. Great recipe. I subbed veggie broth, vegan butter, vegan chorizo and unsweetened almond creamer to make it vegetarian(I still used real cheese). It turned out fantastic. Will definitely make again.

  3. Della Hughey references a tomato soup recipe. Would you please post again? I went back several pages (20) of your older recipes and I could not find it.
