Great flavor! I added ground beef cooked with the onion. I used the suggestion by another reviewer and used mexican velveeta for the cheese. I left out the jalapeno...not my thing. Thanks for the great recipe! I'll be making this again.
YUMMMMM! I added a can of chicken to it and used a can of green chiles in lieu of the jalapeno. Just before serving, I sliced tortillas into strips and put it on top w/sour cream and then served it with Fritos. It was awesome and amazing and will be made, a lot! Thanks so much!
I made mine a chicken and cheese chowder. This was a BIG hit with my 3 kids. They are pretty picky eaters too. My 8 year old decided that black beans were delicious because of this soup. There were only a couple of changes I made. I added 2 chicken breast (cooked and chopped), 2 serrano peppers instead of jalapeno (that's what the grocery store had), and I added mexican velveeta (8 oz) instead of the cheddar. And next time I would probably add about a teaspoon or so of salt. I loved it with some sour cream and tortilla chips in my bowl. YUMMY. Oh yeah, I used one 10 oz can of rotel tomatoes because that's what I keep in my cupboard. The kids are already asking if we can have leftovers for dinner tomorrow night.....THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!
didn't add the corn and used salsa instead of diced tom and chili's (used what i had) and tossed in some left over turkey i wanted to use. Everyone LOVED it. My DS had to helpings... So it's a keeper.
this is wonderful!
My DGS loved this chowder and insisted that we have it again over the weekend, so I made it again today and he is chowing on it now. He's humming up a storm as the eats, so I am guessing he is in chowder heaven at the moment! I have to admit, it is mighty tasty and a new favorite with both of us. DD will be happy when she digs in too, as she loves anything with a Mexican taste and this will do the trick!
This was good. I used extra hot rotel so omitted the jalapeno; wow was it HOT. I totally forgot to add the cheese, so duh, guess I just had vegetable enchilada soup. Still good and since I used skim milk and reduced fat cream soup it wasn't too bad for me either :) I think an extra can of black beans would be an awesome addition.
This is a good "chowder" but I felt as if it was missing something...so did my hubby. We think maybe some cumin or something like that to round out the flavor. I used pinto beans in place of the black beans as no one in my family is a big fan of black beans and I used two cans as I thought the soup needed a little more stuff. Overall, it does have a nice taste and it is very easy to put together. I think next time I will substitute Rotel tomatoes for the regular tomatoes and add a bit of cumin. Thank you for an easy weeknight dish!
Very good and filling. I substituted cream of mushroom soup for the cream of chicken, and it still turned out great! Thank you.
A delicious and satisfying chowder that's easy to make! I sauteed the onion and bell pepper in bacon fat then combined all the ingredients and simmered them awhile on my stovetop. Before adding the cheese I shook together some masa harina and water then stirred in the resulting paste to thicken our soup. We enjoyed it very much ~ Thanks!
