Poblano Corn Chowder With Chicken

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by PaulaG

This soup a little zip. Delicious with a side salad and some fresh bread for a wonderfully satisfying meal. If desired, lowfat milk can be used; however, for added richness add 2 tablespoons of powdered milk.

Great soup. I skipped the oil and put this all in the crock pot. I also added less salt. The lime wedges are a must! All solid flavors together.
