Make

  1. Heat a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add cooking oil and then bacon. Saute until the edges are golden and then set aside onto a paper towel lined plate to catch any fat. Keep ~1 tbs. (15 ml) of fat in the pot.
  2. Return pot back to medium-high heat. Add in garlic, white parts of green onions, and onions with a dash of salt. Saute until softened, ~3 minutes. Stir in potatoes, stock, and adobo sauce. Cover and bring to a boil and then simmer covered for ~5 minutes. Use an immersion blender to puree the soup just a bit. You want to leave some of the potatoes but also puree some to thicken the soup without having to add any cream.
  3. Stir in corn and rotisserie chicken, and cook until warmed through, ~5 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper (or more adobo sauce for a deeper smoky taste). Serve in bowls, garnished with bacon bits and chopped green onions.

Family gave mixed reviews - some thought the corn and chicken made it better than potato soup and others thought it made it worse. All said they would eat it again. I might add less adobo sauce next time because we're not big fans of spice. We added a bagged salad and toast to round out the meal because the chowder wouldn't have been filling enough for our family of four including 2 teens.

Really enjoyed this. Cooked with some bigger, softer chunks of bacon to flavor the chowder, and then added the smaller crispy bacon bits at the end. The adobo sauce and crispy bacon definitely took it to the next level! One cup of corn was enough. Make sure to add extra salt and pepper if you used extra potatoes like I did.

I put everything except the corn, chicken, Bacon and green onion in the slow cooker all day. The potatoes were extra soft, and the flavours were delicious!

Really tasty. I added frozen mixed vegetables as I didn't have corn alone. Served with homemade bread it was a delicious meal.
