Windset Farms presents Chef Ned Bell. We're proud to showcase this recipe for Yam & Corn Pepper Chowder with Salsa. Rich and creamy yummy goodness perfect for any occasion.
Chicken thighs/breasts are best but can be substituted with baby shrimp or bay scallops. Whole milk can be used as a light substitute for cream. Vegetable stock can be used in place of chicken stock.
