The smoky flavor of the chipotle peppers in this recipe combines with corn to make a bordertown chowder with substance and sizzle; the Southwest at its best!

Oh my gosh, this soup. It's SO GOOD. I was cleaning out my fridge before vacation and happened to have most of the ingredients on hand (even leeks, oddly). I used smoked paprika in place of the chipotle peppers and added some extra veggies I wanted to use up like half a head of broccoli and some diced onion I had leftover from a different dinner. The result was amazing. I'll definitely be making this soup again soon!
