Tex-Mex Cheesy Chicken Chowder

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Hey Jude

This came highly recommended from one of my co-workers and, honestly, I was kind of skeptical because of a couple of the ingredients. I'm usually not interested in recipes that have convenience foods in them but I gave this one a shot and, boy, is it good! I'm still not thrilled with the Velveeta and would like to find an easy-melting cheese to replace it so if anyone trying this recipe can come up with something, I'm all ears! This makes up a big pot of thick, hearty chowder that would be perfect for a Super Bowl party, or any get-together with lots of guys and kids...it's just something that would appeal to that group, you know? You can easily adjust the heat by the type of salsa you use....I used a mild salsa and it was perfect for us. Oh, my co-worker's neighbor got this recipe from Midwest Living magazine.

Absolutely delicious! I used the white velveeta because I do not enjoy regular velveeta and it was a huge hit. Three out of four of my picky eaters raved about it.
