      Made the soup as directed except to use crushed tomatoes for salsa because that's what we had, & no ham because we didn't have that either. DELICIOUS and I'll be making again... If only black beans were easier to find in Australia :-(

      Fabulous, just fabulous! What else can I say? I subbed roasted red peppers, cilantro for the coriander, homemade stock for the water and bouillon and petite diced tomatoes for the salsa. I let it sit in the fridge for two days and we couldn't get enough of it! I just might make this a weekly meal. Thank you!

      YUMMY! This was my NN for PAC Fall 2007 and I loved this chowder. It was even better with the addition of cheddar cheese and sour cream. Easy to do. I cooked it on simmer for 2 hours.
