Instant Pot Slow Cooked Chipotle Corn Chowder

This is simple, easy to make soup filled with flavors from fresh corn and chipotle peppers. Also, this is one of our favorite soups. This is a slow cooked version using Instant Pot. Instant Pot is handy when you need to make things quicker or use as a slow cooker. This is a blessing for me to make quick meals as well as slow cooked ones in one single appliance. 

Fresh or frozen corn can be used. When corn ears are freshly available in season, I make sure to cook this soup often. Even if it hot weather, I would enjoy this soup. I just add everything to the pot, come back after 8 hours and add a finishing touch for a perfect dinner. Simple steps to make yummy meals and a great life are always needed and this is one. I don't add the cheese to the soup. Instead I add as a topping to individual bowls which helps in adjusting according to the preference. This is the most delicious bowl you'll need after a long day. This can be enjoyed in winter too with frozen or canned corn.

Sue Lau of Palatable Pastime is hosting the #multicookermonday. And this is my recipe for this month's event.
