This tasted so good to me. I have had something real similar to this at a lodge we go to in southern Missouri. I did as you suggested and served this hot over tortilla chips. I only used 1 finely chopped jalapeno and it was spicy but did not hurt us. I used about 1 1/2 cups of cheese because we like it so much. Thanks for a great hearty recipe.
I made this for dinner last night. My family loved it. The seasonings were wonderful. I only used small amount of chopped jalapeno pepper and it was just right. Thanks for the great recipe. We will have this often.
Very good - SO immediately asked for this to be put on the recipes-to-make-again list. :-) I only used 1/2 of the chicken broth though, as I wanted a drier stew-type thingy this time, and was out of jalapenos (shocking, they're a staple in this house) so threw in some red pepper flakes instead. Thank you for sharing!
