Jalapeño chiles add spunky flavor to this potato chowder, one that will satisfy even the most hearty appetites. However, if your family likes to take a walk on the mild side, just leave it out. This is great served with warm corn bread and cold milk.
Jalapeño-Tuna-Potato Chowder: Omit whole kernel corn. Add 1 can (6 ounces) white tuna in water, drained, with the remaining ingredients in step 3.
