Pioneer woman’s Corn and Cheese Chowder

Corn soup is a typical North American dish. Although the result is actually more like a cream, it is considered a soup. It is a very creamy dish, slightly sweet and satisfying, ideal for cold days. There are many versions of this soup, as well as new Asian fusion creations that incorporate, for example, crab.

Be careful because corn soup is not a low calorie or saturated fat dish, but from time to time it is worth indulging yourself and trying typical dishes from other countries.

Do you know what sweet corn is?

The base of this dish and what gives it its characteristic flavor is sweet corn. And this is where we are going to define this cereal a bit, because sometimes we are so used to seeing some foods that we do not give importance to its origin, and in this case, it is important.

Sweet corn is a variety of corn that arises from a (spontaneous) genetic mutation, precisely of the genes that control the conversion of sugar into starch. The result is a corn with a high sugar content, so its flavor is very rich, but it must be consumed in moderation as it contains almost 7 g of sugar for every 100 g of corn. That said, it is also a food rich in fiber and that gives us great amounts of vitamin D, A and C.
