Smoky Corn & Potato Chowder #5FIX

“5-Ingredient Fix Contest Entry. This hearty chowder is fabulous on its own or can be used as a great way to use up leftovers. Chopped chicken or ham, and broccoli, bell peppers or carrots are all wonderful stir-ins. And don't be afraid to jazz things up with a little spice. Seasoned salt, hot pepper sauce or a pinch of thyme are good options when you're looking for a change of pace.”
