Roasted Summer Corn Chowder

"This recipe uses leftover baked potatoes and helps clean out your pantry! During these hot Summer months having a few practical recipes is a time saver while allowing us to enjoy all the benefits of sweet summer corn. As is, this recipe mirrors a mechanical-soft texture, but you can blend completely for a full-liquid texture or add corn chips for a crunchy twist!" -Denice Hynd RD, MPH
