Mexican Corn Chowder

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by MadzMom

This is my mom's soup recipe that is requested by my brothers and me at nearly every family get-together. I'm not sure where it originated, but boy is it a popular one! The condiments are key to this recipe, so be sure and mix them all up in the chowder! DELICIOUS! (30 min. prep time includes boiling the chicken)

I would make it again but use less onion and make a a bit thicker. I used 1 tbs of olive oil rather than the butter the recipe called for. It worked out great.
