A tasty chowder perfect for a cold winter day. If your feeling adventurous buy some small sourdough boules of bread, scoop out the middle and serve the chowder inside the bread bowl. The bread soaks up the chowder that doesn't make it onto your spoon. The bread bowl is delicious and fun to eat!

This recipe is a winner. i have served this to over twenty differnt friends in the past two months and everyone said it was amazing. i did take advise from other reviews and pureed two cups of the soup after it had simmered before the corn and salsa. i also added more corn and tomatos to feed more people.

This is a fairly easy recipe to put together. I enjoyed the the kick from the tomatoes and chiles, not a favorite of the kids, a good soup for adult taste buds. Will make again for a family dinner with pepper cornbread. Read More

I followed the recipe exactly and it was pretty good. Next time I might add jalepenos or a spicier salsa for extra zip! Read More

This soup is wonderful. The only thing I might try next time is to puree most or all of the soup before putting in the corn. Wonderful taste and easy to make. Read More

Very yummy. Per other reviews I omitted a little of the milk to make it less liquidy. It had great flavor and no other changes were needed. I also added garlic. Yummy. Thank you. very easy to make too Read More

This recipe was a perfect candidate for my crock pot once I sauteed the peppers and onions. I served the chowder in fresh-out-of-the-oven sourdough boules and it was a meal fit for a king! Read More

I could have eaten it all myself! I used chicken broth and hot salsa since I had it in my pantry. I will definitely make it again. Read More

Thought it was pretty good. I added extra vegetables and added cooked cubed potatoes as I like my soups hearty. Thanks for the recipe it is different. Read More
