Jiffy Enchilada Chowder (A Pantry Recipe)

READY IN: 7mins
Recipe by Nyteglori

I am publishing a series of recipes that use items from your pantry. These recipes are good for emergency survival, camping, job loss and other situations where surviving off staples may be needed. Most of these are also good as a quick dinner when you dont feel like cooking. Since these recipes require canned or packaged goods they may not be as good as if you use fresh - but feel free to substitute fresh for packaged.

I thought this was pretty good. My dh didnt care for it and my youngest said it was all right. We all three thought it seemed more like a dip than a chowder and like the last reply would be good with Tortillas. I liked the spice and kick. Just the right thickness to me.
