It’s been hot and humid here, and I am not a fan. It’s not the time of year for high heat cooking, and probably not for soup. But it is time for sweet corn, and one of my favorite ways to eat corn is in a corn chowder.
This is when my Instant Pot comes to the rescue. While I was skeptical at first, it really does make summer time cooking a breeze. As a bonus, it’s easy cleanup, of which I definitely am a fan.
Overall, this is a pretty adaptable soup. I started by cooking some onions, peppers, and garlic in avocado oil, but you could use bacon instead. Then in goes corn and potatoes, a yummy seasoning blend, and some broth. Seal, cook, and add some cheese and milk. Stir in some fresh herbs. When you’re done, top it with whatever you want — this time I just used a bit more cheese and some green onions, but tortilla chips, avocado, and sour cream all work nicely.
