Texas Corn Chowder Recipe

Texas Corn Chowder Recipe

THIS RECIPE has been a favorite in our family for years. Now that we have an empty nest, I took it upon myself to cut the recipe down to serve two so we can still enjoy it. The jalapeno adds a little zip and color! -Mildred Sherrer, Bay City , Texas
