Back in October the lovely ladies, Amanda, Leslie, and Lindsey, from Messy Aprons held a giveaway for a Vera Bradley Recipe box containing all the yummy recipes that they have featured. (I am a HUGE Vera Bradley fan) The ladies asked followers to leave a comment telling everyone what their favorite Fall meal or treat was. Here is what I said:

My favorite fall food is a tie...anything made from apples and any kind of soup. I am going to be posting soon about my favorite soup-it's a Roasted Red Pepper and Red Chili Corn and Potato Chowder...I need to come up with a shorter name for it though. Any ideas?
And now I'd like to share that recipe with you! I will warn you that this chowder is very spicy according to my pallet, so feel free to tinker with it to please your taste buds.
2 cans of Campbell's Creamy Potato Soup
2 cups milk
1/2 of a red bell pepper
1 red chili pepper, seeded and chopped fine
1 orange hot pepper, seeded and chopped fine
1 clove garlic, chopped fine
1 cup frozen sweet corn
1/2 tsp. Coriander Powder
1/2 tsp. Cumin Power
1.) Quarter the red bell pepper and put 2 quarters away for a rainy day. Take the other 2 quarters and lightly brush with oil and place in a lined baking dish. Broil red pepper for 10-15 minutes on high until the tops start to blacken. Remove from broiler and let cool.
2.) Finely chop 1 clove garlic, 1 red chili pepper, and 1 orange hot pepper. When the red bell peppers are cool enough to touch, peel off the blackened skins and chop the roasted red pepper quarters into small pieces. Place all chopped ingredients into a medium/large pot.
3.) Over medium/ high heat saute peppers and garlic. Add 1/2 tsp. Cumin and 1/2 tsp Coriander while sauteing. I don''t know how long to saute them for, I just know when it starts to smell REALLY good that I start adding other stuff. I love the smell of Cumin!
4.) Add 1 cup milk and then add both cans of Campbell's Creamy Potato Soup followed another cup of milk. Whisk together until smooth.
5.) When the mixture starts to bubble around the edge of the pot, add the frozen corn.
6.) Simmer, uncovered for 15 minutes. Season to your taste if needed. If it's too spicy try adding a little bit of heavy cream or half & half.
7.) Serve! Depending on how much of this spicy chowder you can handle in one sitting, it makes 3-4 servings.
