Gluten Free Friday: Cheesy Chicken Corn Chowder

I love corn chowder.  I love chicken corn chowder.  I love cheese.  You can see where I’m going with this.  Marrying all the flavors I love was an inspiration.  A spicy one.  Big yum.  If it’s too spicy for you, you could get mild rotel or cool it down with some sour cream.  I loved it exactly as it was.  Makes 3 servings at 390 calories and 10.8 grams of fat.
