Endless Possibilities and Tips

You have the power to make this Mexican Street Corn Chowder your own. Here are some swaps and tips to consider:

  • During the summer, use fresh corn by adding 1 ½ cups of kernels to the pot. Pulse another 3 cups of kernels in a food processor and add them to the pot with an additional ½ cup of milk and a pinch of sugar. This will extend the cook time by about 10-15 minutes.
  • Swap canned chiles with fresh serrano peppers. Seed and dice them, and add them to the pot with the onion and bell peppers to soften.
  • Replace milk with half-and-half for a thicker chowder. For a lighter and slightly tropical twist, use full-fat canned coconut milk or shelf-stable coconut milk.
  • Opt for canned Mexicorn instead of whole kernel corn to skip using a bell pepper.
  • Don’t forget to include TABASCO® Sauce! Its heat and rich flavor are essential for capturing the signature Mexican street corn vibe. Without it, your corn chowder will be lacking that extra oomph.
