Sweet corn and smokey peppers

At first this seemed more like a chowder, but since all chowders must have fish in them I called it a stew.

It is really a thick soup.

Really fresh corn and tomatoes make this dish. For how to grill corn go here but omit the butter. For how to stew fresh tomatoes go here.

    Delicious corn chowder. I wonder if you could substitute something else for the black eyed peas in case I can’t find any.

  2. Its a great time of the year to celebrate the last harvests of corn! Black eyed peas is a legume that I adore and they simply just do not stock it on the shelves in Hong Kong. I guess that is something I will have to stock up on during a visit back to the states. I love black eyed peas!
