Tonight's dinner mission was to make some warm comfort food on this dreary day.  So I decided to use up the roma tomatoes I had bought last week before they went bad and make a chowder I have had on the menu for a few weeks, but for one reason or another I haven't made.  I had found this recipe on Gluten-Free Godess website and thought it sounded amazing.  I tweaked the recipe slightly to accommodate my daughter's tastes because she doesn't like spicy foods.  This soup has a lovely sweet flavor with mild spices.  If you like your soup to have more "heat", you can add a 4 oz can of chopped green chilies. 

Here's what you'll need

Fire Roasted Corn Chowder with Chicken, Cilantro, and Lime
3 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
2 chicken breast, cooked and chopped
3 roma tomatoes
3 cans fat-free chicken stock
1 14 oz canned tomatoes with mild green chilis
1 14 oz can coconut milk
1 10 oz pkg fire roasted corn or 3 ears of corn fire roasted on the grill
1 large sweet potato, diced
5 cloves garlic, minced
Salt & Pepper
Lime juice
Agave nectar


This recipe can use left over cooked chicken from a previous meal.  Tonight I used two frozen chicken breast that I thawed din the microwave and chopped.  I sauteed the chicken in a non-stick pan to cook it prior to adding it to the soup.


Chop your vegetables so they are ready to add when needed.


In a large stock pot, add olive oil and spice to the pan.  Heat for about a minute to infuse the flavor into the oil.  Add garlic and onions and sautee about 2 minutes to soften.


Add tomatoes, fire roasted corn, and sweet potatoes to the onion mixture.  Stir to combine.


Add canned tomatoes with chilies to mixture.


Add chicken stock and stir.  Bring to a boil and simmer 20 minutes until vegetables are soften.


Once vegetables have soften, add chicken.


Add coconut milk reduce temperature and simmer an additional 10 minutes.  Do not bring to a boil. 


Add 2 tablespoons of lime juice (I used the kind that comes in a plastic bottle), drizzle with agave nectar, and top with fresh chopped cilantro.
