Papa Dar's Green Chile and Chicken Corn Chowder

Rated as 4.89 out of 5 Stars

"This is a totally original chowder that I came up with on my own using things that I love to cook with. Family and friends beg for this when the weather turns cold. The russet potatoes allows the liquid to thicken and no flour or corn starch is needed. New Mexico green chile is recommended. Note: if using fresh green chile, add 1/2 cup of chicken stock for added liquid. Serve with your favorite corn bread."

LOVE it!! A HUGE hit with the entire family plus a friend who was over. I was 1 can short on the green chilies but it was plenty spicy enough for us so I think I'll stick w/that amount again. T...

Very good chowder. I did make some alterations. One thing is I would definitely parboil the potatoes prior to putting them in the pan. Mine are not quite soft enough. I did use fresh Hatch ...

Family liked it and so did Santa at my school where I teach. He asked for the recipe.

It was good, I made some changes the 2nd time I made it & I think it enhanced the recipe. Cook the bacon a little longer than called for (crispy edges) , it gives the soup more of a concentrate...

I used fresh corn on the cob. It came out perfectly.

this is one of my favorite go-to recipes, as I usually have all the ingredients on hand and everyone loves it. I use leftover chicken or frozen pre-cooked, cut back on the chilis (because kids) ...

We really enjoyed this on a cold winter night. I halved the ingredients since there were only 3 of us. I might add some diced red or green bell pepper along with the onion, just to add some colo...

This recipe is AMAZING! So easy and so good! A must for cold winter days, my entire family loved it and we had plenty of leftovers, too! Great job, Papa Dar!
