    That cilantro adorned first picture is such a stunner! I looked deep into it and I found so much warmth, joy, love, laughter, happiness and positivity into that little chowder bowl !

    Outstanding recipe and fascinating photos, as always.

    Hugs.

    I so agree with the significance of the flavors of watermelon, peaches, and corn. They mean Summer to me like no other vegetable or fruit. This soup that you’ve prepared sounds fantastic, Judy, and using cauliflower as a thickening agent is a very good idea. Though corn season is ending, there’s still time to make this soup. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

      Thanks, John. Yes, there should still be time, but it is short indeed. I do think you’ll like the addition of the cauliflower — so healthy and good!

    Lovely chowder! Although nothing compares to the flavor of fresh corn, the frozen isn’t half bad, and could probably substitute nicely in this. Which is what I’d have to use – our fresh local corn is no more, alas! Still getting plenty of watermelons and peaches, though. Great recipe, and I happen to have some Hatch chilies that I roasted and froze. I think they’ve found their new home!

    I am not a huge fan of the chile flavor, but I can not deny how delicious this looks. So I have to try this when the days begin to get colder. Delish

    I love chowders and my favourite are the seafood variant but it looks like it will change soon, I want to give it a shot, roasting your ingredients would give this a bolder flavour

      Yes Raymund, roasting the ingredients makes a big difference. I do hope you try it and let me know how it turns out. :)

    I love all the roasted flavors here. Chowder, with corn and a but of spice, is a wonderful soup. One of my favorites and your version looks really, really tasty!

    Chiles are optional? I don’t think so! :) What a delicious looking soup and perfect for the cooler temperatures we’ve been having. Have you been surviving all of the rain? So lots of flooding up your way. Well, you chowder looks delicious and what an interesting twist with the cauliflower!

      Thanks, MJ, I thought of you when I was making this soup, you do so many delicious things with chiles. The chiles really are wonderful, but I do have a few friend who don’t like them (I know, hard to believe).

      Personally, we are okay from all the flooding, but so many around us and North of us are not. Some mountain towns are completely cut off, hundreds of homes lost, many still missing, and at least 6 lives lost. It is devistating to many, very sad. Thank you for asking, friend.

    Judy, I love, love, love corn chowder, but haven’t made it for ages since cream isn’t my friend these days. Thank you so much for the dairy free option to your magnificent recipe! xx

    This looks great. I love corn chowder and I love to put green chilis in most things.
