Are you ready for some football? I am! I’m a huge football fan cheering for the Buffalo Bills every Sunday. They started the season with a win so I’m hoping this is a good year!

I love to get everyone together every Sunday to watch football. I always make some of my favorite football munchies including some yummy guilt-free dishes for everyone to enjoy while watching the game. What’s better on a chilly fall day while watching football than a big pot of soup. Soup is also great to take along if heading out to the stadium to watch the game. Whether you are tailgating or looking to warm up after the game, a hearty soup is always a crowd pleaser.

With the football season upon us I created this delicious Mexican Corn Chowder loaded with corn, red peppers in a creamy dairy-free chowder made with Silk Unsweetened Coconut Milk. It’s so thick and creamy you don’t even know it’s dairy free! It’s also super easy to make and can be ready in about 30 minutes!
