      WOW Sue, I guess you REALLY meant spicy :) Made this for our dinner last night, and when I taste tested it, I thought my ears were gonna blow right off ~ just kidding, but this is definitely a hot and spicy chowder. DH had 2 servings, thought it was absolutely WONDERFUL! We used the prepackaged tortilla chips and a mix of cheddar and jack cheeses. Very WARMING dish!! Thanks SueL for another keeper, made for Potluck Tag, Jan 2009.
