You will be able to sample any kind of chowder you can think of. It's food that warms the soul, so I had to share my favorite chowder recipe for Buffalo Chicken Chowder.



- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 4 celery ribs, chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1⁄4 cup flour
- 3 cups skim milk
- 3⁄4-1 cup Hot Sauce, I suggest Simply Supreme Hot Sauce (more or less depending on taste)
- 1 1⁄2 cups frozen corn
- 2 cups diced cooked chicken (about 1 lb)
- 8 ounces cream cheese (I use reduced fat)

Sauté onions and celery in butter in a large pot until tender.
Add garlic and cook for another minute.
Reduce heat and stir in flour, cook for 1-2 minutes. Do not brown.
Add milk, wing sauce, corn, chicken and cream cheese and bring to a simmer.
Cook until cheese is melted and soup has thickened.
