Found this in cooking light mag. I added more potato to make it a little more hardy along with using broth instead of consumme (use vegetable broth for a great vegetarian dish). My husband and kids loved it. Great way to get those beans in your diet. Yumm!

This has a wonderful flavor. I made two minor changes. I used all garbanzo beans just because I really like them. (I tried it with a mix of beans as well but preferred it with all garbanzo) I used one can of Rotel and one can of diced tomatoes as there are sensitive tongues in my house! That's it for the changes just one more note: I made it in a crockpot, adding onion, celery, green pepper, red pepper and garlic first for about an hour. I then added the rest of the ingredient and cooked until beans and potatoes were done. (Approx. 3 hours) Thanks for this recipe!
I thought this chowder was delicious and made a good comfort food for me. I used 2 cloves of garlic but other than that, I thought the chowder had a nice blend of ingredients and seasonings. Very filling and perfect for a low-fat diet. Thanks.
This was delicious! I made it for the Comfort Food Cookathon, and will definately be making it again when I need a good comfort food. Thanks for the recipe!
