READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by galcott

A wonderful soup recipe from "The Pressure Cooker Cookbook" by Toula Patsalis. Can be made without a pressure cooker but cooking time will be longer.

Great soup. I will use heavy cream next time. I like my chowders very creamy. Thanks for<br/>sharing!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a pressure cooker, saute bacon until crisp.
  2. Add oil, onion, garlic and chicken. Saute 3 minutes.
  3. Stir in tomatoes, salsa, peppers, carrots, chicken broth, salt, red pepper flakes and hot pepper sauce.
  4. Close pressure cooker and heat on high to develop maximum pressure. Reduce heat to maintain pressure and cook 6 minutes, then release pressure. Remove the chicken and cut it into bite-size pieces.
  5. Add chicken, corn, cilantro and sherry to the soup. Bring to a simmer and cook 2 minutes. Combine flour and butter into a paste, then add it one tablespoon at a time, mixing until the soup is creamy. Cook 1 more minute. Add half-and-half and mix thoroughly.
  6. If not using a pressure cooker, you will need to cook for a longer time, though I have not tested the recipe this way.
