SEAFOOD AND CORN CHOWDER

SEAFOOD AND CORN CHOWDER is historically a peasant food  prepared in a large pot or cauldron. The ingredients for chowder includes vegetables , and often fish or seafood, depending  on the area you live in. You can make this dish with  or mussels, different types of fish, scallops or shrimp.  It is a simple but sweet soup that gets its flavor from fresh ingredients. Sweet corn and shrimp are my favorite ingredients in this recipe.

1 medium onion, diced

1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and diced (optional)

1 (32 ounce ) container chicken broth

Saute the celery ,bell pepper, and onion in hot drippings 5 to 6 minutes or until tender.

Whisk together the chicken broth and  flour until smooth. Add to the celery mixture. Stir in the sweet corn. Bring to a boil; reduce heat , and simmer, stirring occasionally, about 30 minutes. Gently stir in the fresh peeled cooked  shrimp and whipping cream, chopped cilantro, salt and pepper; cook 6 to 8 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
