Thanks to a bevy of frozen and refrigerated veggies, this chowder comes together quickly but has fresh flavor and is packed with nutrition. The go-to ingredients here are refrigerated red potato wedges (ready to cook straight out of the bag), frozen corn kernels (saves you from shucking and cutting corn from the cob), and frozen shelled edamame (which add color, texture, and protein to this dish). Blending half the corn with chicken broth creates a creamy base so you need less half-and-half.
