Vegetable Corn chowder with a hint of spice.

There was this can of cream style corn in my pantry patiently waiting for me to finally make the corn chowder that I have been wanting to make with it for a long long time now.Finally taking pity on the lone can of corn,I decided to make the long awaited chowder.After the usual search through recipes to come up with one that seems to be THE ONE, I finally decided to take some ideas from the recipes that I went through and using a few of my own I worked out this final recipe to make the chowder.

It worked out very well,was light,nutritious and tasty with just the right amount of spice and it was very simple and quick to make.This recipe also eliminated the calories from the cream that most recipes required by using milk instead.This ones definitely a keeper as far as I am concerned and I plan to make this one again.
