This was very good! I subbed half green bell pepper (chopped) for the jalapenos and since I didn't have veggie broth I used chicken broth. Mildly spiced but great for this heat-sensative family! It did need some extra S&P but I'd make this again! Good recipe Silverwolf! Read More

This soup tastes great but is a recipe that a beginner may find complicated. In the end, it is worth it---our party licked their bowls clean! Read More

Delicious! I only had yellow bell pepper, so I used that. After the potatoes cooked in the broth, I added the tortellini right in there to cook, instead of dirting another pot (yes, I'm lazy, lol). When they were just about done, I added in the corn and 1/2 & 1/2. I thickened w/ Wondra flour instead of the flour/oil mixture. I didn't find this bland at all, we thought it was very flavorful. This was a wonderful, different soup that I will be making over and over~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :) Read More

Fantastic! I made two small changes to the recipe: first I used yellow bell pepper (it's all I had on hand). Second I used milk rather than half-and-half (didn't have time to run to the store for more half-and half I didn't have enough). Other than that I kept to the recipe and absolutely loved it. It's mildly spicy but still very comforting. I enjoyed the mix of potatoes and tortellini but I can see where others may not have liked it as much. I'll be making this again for sure but maybe I'll mix the flour with water or some milk (as someone else noted the oil does come up to the top of the pot). Thanks for the recipe! Read More

tonight as i was clearing off the table and getting it ready for dinner i turned around and the fella was eating the soup out of the pot on the stove with the ladle. we love this recipe. we usually follow it exactly but tonight i didn't feel like dealing with the jalapeno or chile peppers so i just added a little jalapeno tobasco. it still tasted amazing. i'll probably skip those two ingredients from now on. either way i have no idea why this isn't a more popular recipe. this chowder is amazing. oh and i'd rather die than eat cilantro so that was out too.

Excellent! Just had this for lunch and loved it. I agree that tortellini and potatoes are an odd combination so left out the potatoes (and the red pepper flakes). It was still quite spicey but delicious. Will definitely be making this again. Read More

I added some stewing beef and two tomatoes to this. It turned out great. I thought the pasta and the potatoes were a bit much though. Next time I'll do one or the other. Read More

Very good. I had all ingredients on hand except tortellini. So I made it with out. I followed all amounts and directions as indicated in the recipe. I will make this again but use frozen corn instead. Canned corn is chewier I think. Read More
