Corn Chowder with Regular Chili Powder for vegetarian/meat combined

These are the vegetables that are available at this time of the year from my farmer. I made up this recipe to use a lot of them. I freeze the soup to eat during the winter.

For a low-sodium chowder, make sure you use low-sodium or salt-free broth.
