This is an awesome soup. I didn't have poblano or cherry peppers so I used jalapenos and red pepper flakes. I also used milk instead of cream. I ended up cooking this for 5 hours on low. I'll be making this one again! Read More

Don't be fooled by the inexplicable high ratings. It's not just bad.... It's nothing more than cooked vegetables in hot milk. Look at the ingredients - no seasoning whatsoever not even a grain of salt. To make it edible you're going to have to dress it up so much that you might as well look elsewhere for a better chowder recipe to follow. Also this makes an enormous quantity filling a large crockpot to the brim. You'll be eating this mess for a week. Read More

really turned out great. lots of flavor! i was afraid it would be to spicy for our kids so i left out the jalapeños. everything else the same as the recipe. the poblano peppers etc. give a great flavor and mild spice. Read More

This is the best soup ever! I always make this for our Lenten Soup suppers and it is the FIRST soup to go!! Great recipe! I did make some minor adjustments. For instance when cooking the veggies I sautéed some minced garlic before adding the veggies. While they were cooking I added a little more butter (butter makes it better) and 4-5 dashes of cayenne pepper. In addition before adding the chile into the soup I cooked it a little with some garlic and onion salt. It definitely brings out more of the chile flavor when you do add it to the soup! I should mention that I substituted all the various peppers for just Green Chile Peppers (not to be confused with bell peppers). Read More

This is very tasty yet very spicy! If you're not into very spicy food definitely take the pepper count down or use less spicy peppers. Read More

I completely agree with Debbie D's review, this recipe was not good. No flavor at all and very thin. I think the recipe should call for making some type of roux with the butter and vegetables, that would certainly help with the flavor. However, there are way too many vegetables in the pan so making a roux is not possible unless you cook the veggies in batches. And also very thin so maybe using heavy cream versus half and half would be better? Also, I could feed my family of 5 for a month with the amount of soup this made. Don't waste your time on this one.
