It is still suffocatingly hot and humid around here but crisp, cool weather is just around the corner. In preparation of those gorgeous fall days, I am sharing this delicious recipe that is sure to keep you warm. This corn chowder gets a new twist with salsa and spices. It is full of flavor without being too spicy.
