  • 8 ears of corn, corn removed (about 89 cups)
  • 5 yukon potatoes, diced
  • 6 strips of bacon, diced
  • 1 large red onion, diced
  • 2 large poblanos, roasted then diced
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 cups of vegetable stock
  • 3 cups of water
  • 1 cup of coconut milk (from a can)
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro
  • juice of 2 limes
  • 2 avocados, sliced


  1. Turn two stove burners on medium high. Place poblanos directly on burners. Roast until all sides of the poblano are charred, about 2-3 minutes per side. Remove. Let sit to cool down.
  2. Using a knife gently remove the charred skin off the poblano, then dice the poblanos. Set aside.
  3. To a large crock pot, add corn, yukon potatoes, red onions, poblanos, ground cumin, smoked paprika, salt, garlic cloves, vegetable stock, and water. Place cover on and cook on HIGH for 4 hours.
  4. Using a ladle, add 2 cups of the soup from the crock pot to a blender or food processor along with coconut milk. Blend until mixture is smooth and coconut milk is emulsified.
  5. Add blended coconut milk mixture back to the crock pot along with fresh cilantro and lime juice. Stir and cook for 10 minutes.
  6. In the meantime preheat a skillet to medium high heat. Add bacon to skillet, cook for 5-7 minutes until slightly crispy. Remove the bacon from pan and place on a paper towel lined plate to drain the grease.
  7. Serve chowder! Top with bacon, avocado and cilantro.
