About this recipe

This poblano corn chowder is one of my favorite soups ever. It is a hearty soup with two of my favorite foods: potato corn chowder and poblano peppers.

The poblano peppers give this potato corn chowder recipe an unexpected twist. Each creamy spoonful has spicy notes that make you want to take another and another spoonful.

This vegan, easy, one-pot recipe is perfect for lunch or dinner during the summer when corn is perfect and delicious or during colder months when we need a good hot soup.

Ingredients for the creamy poblano corn chowder

  • Onion, garlic, carrots, and celery this mix will make our flavor base for our corn chowder.
  • Poblano pepper. This is an excellent addition to the soup; the poblano peppers’ spiciness complements the corn’s sweetness and the potatoes’ creaminess. Use one or two jalapenos if you don’t have poblanos.
  • Potatoes. use Yukon potatoes or any other creamy potato. I like to use new potatoes here as well.
  • Corn. Corn kernels, and I like to add the corn cob to the pot while the vegetables are cooking.
  • Seasoning I season it with bay leaves, thyme, and marjoram. this is a very common spice mix in Mexican cuisine.
  • Vegetable broth or water. You can also use storebought
  • Milk. Dairy-free milk, use oat milk, almond milk or cashew milk.

How to make the best poblano corn chowder

  • In a large pot over medium heat add the oil (you could also use butter if you whish) and the sliced poblano chile. Leave it there until it begins to soften ng get golden around the edges. Add the onion, carrots, celery and garlic. Leave for five more minutes or until you see that the onion is translucent.
  • Add the corn kernels, potatoes, salt and cover with water, add the salt and cover. Add the spices, leave for 10-15 minutes or until the vegetables are cooked.
  • With a ladel, add about one-third of the vegetables and liquid into the container of a blender. Blend with one cup of milk until smooth.
  • Return to the pot with the rest of the vegetables. If you need more liquid, add a little more water. Check for seasoning and adjust if necessary.
  • Serve with a drizzle of olive oil, pumpkin seeds, corn kernels, sprouts or chopped cilantro, and lime juice. Finish with sea salt and pepper.

Tips and tricks

  • Cook the vegetables until tender.
  • Use frozen corn kernels if you don’t have fresh corn.
  • If you want this corn poblano chowder to be creamier, add heavy cream to the blender (vegan sour cream) or finish with a drizzle.
  • You could roast the poblano peppers in the broiler, on a baking sheet, over the stove, open flame or grill and then peel.
  • I like to make soups like this in a dutch oven, but any other stock pot will work.

Hi Ale. This looks like a wonderful soup and I’m looking forward to trying it. I noticed in the recipe that you call for “5 corn husks” which I’m going to assume means the kernels sliced from 5 ears. “Husks” usually means the green outer covering which you need to remove. One more English language quirk…
