PepperJack Corn Chowder

Pepperjack, Cilantro, Green Chilies, Tomatoes, Lime Juice and sweet corn. pepperjack corn chowder

On the day that I was deciding what to make for this month’s VELVEETA® and Ro*Tel® recipe, a crazy cold front blew in to South Texas.  It dropped 15 degrees in an hour and we actually had to put on {gasp} long sleeves!

That solidified it, it was time for something hearty, filling and easy.   I went to my pantry and found that I had a can of Mexican Style Ro*Tel® with Cilantro and Lime Juice and a couple of cans of cream style corn.  Done.  No brainer.  I decided to do a twist on a Southern Classic – Corn Chowder.  I sauteed sweet red bell peppers, green bell peppers and yellow onion in butter until slightly soft

Then I added in cream cheese, cream style corn, milk, pepperjack VELVEETA® and Mexican Style Ro*Tel® with Cilantro and lime juice and simmered and stirred until everything was melted and creamy.  Poured everyone a bowl and we devoured it.  Nathan, who doesn’t eat corn unless it is grilled corn on the cob – asked for seconds.  My kids (I fainted) loved it.  This was quick, delicious, filling, satisfying and yummy… did I mention that it was delicious?  I’m so excited to share this yummy meal with y’all and I hope that y’all, in turn, share it with your friends and family!
