  1. Place the shoepeg corn and fresh corn into a large pot with the wine and water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer 20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in the onions, garlic, yellow bell pepper, red bell pepper, and jalapeno pepper. Cook and stir until the vegetables have softened and the onion has turned translucent, about 10 minutes.
  3. Stir the pepper mixture into the pot with the corn along with the soy milk, oregano, and chipotle salsa. Return the soup to a simmer over medium-high heat, then reduce the heat to medium-low, and simmer uncovered for 10 minutes. Dissolve the cornstarch in 1/3 cup of cool water, and stir into the simmering soup along with the honey, soy sauce, orange zest, and garlic powder. Simmer another 10 minutes to thicken the soup, stirring frequently. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and cracked pepper before serving.

I made this as written, although I cut the recipe in half. Unfortunately, it didn't work for us. The honey, orange, soy sauce just seem out of place considering the rest of the ingredients. I...

We loved this!!! It had the perfect spicy/sweet to it! It's a little sweeter than most corn chowders but I think it helps to cut down on some of the heat. I used fat free milk instead of soy,...

I made this recipe and have a few suggestions to make it great! This recipe doesn't have very much character ... just a lot of heat. Heat/spice should really be the last and most memorable of ...
