Corn & Coconut Milk Chowder Recipe

This soup has everything going for it. Its flavor is complex – sweet, spicy and creamy. You’d swear you are eating at a 5 star restaurant! The fresh corn, creamy coconut milk, and a burst of jalapeño peppers and lime create a complex, gourmet flavor.

Ingredients                                  4-6 servings       

  • 2 Tbl coconut oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1-1/2 fresh jalapeño peppers, seeded and diced
  • 3 cups fresh or frozen corn kernels (thawed if frozen) Trader Joe’s frozen “Organic Super Sweet Corn” is great
  • 1 can full-fat coconut milk – 14 oz
  • 2 cups water
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lime zest
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice


  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, minced
  • 3 pickled jalapeños, sliced into thin rounds
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen corn kernels (thawed if frozen)
  • 3 Tbl unsweetened coconut flakes


  1. Cook coconut oil in a large soup pot over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, add the onion and sauté until lightly browned and tender, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic, fresh jalapeños, and corn. Cook, stirring often, until the vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes.
  2. Stir in coconut milk and water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until the vegetables are soft and the soup is fragrant, about 15-20 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Use an immersion blender to puree until smooth.
  4. Return the soup to the pot. Stir in the lime zest and juice. Taste and add additional salt and pepper if desired.
  5. This creates a smooth creamy soup. You can add more unblended corn at the end to create a soup with a chunkier texture.
  6. Garnish each bowl with minced cilantro, pickled jalapeños, corn kernels, and coconut flakes.
