I bought a ton of Hatch green chiles in August and thought a soup/chowder would be a good way to use them in the winter. They were spicier than I expected so I had to use rice and corn in the soup to cut the spice level. My parents loved it so I passed it on to them, then the girls at work loved it so I passed the recipe on to them also. Hopefully, y'all will love it too. It's a nice comfort food. Serve topped with cheese.

Instructions Checklist
  • Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil; place chile peppers cut-side down on top.

  • Cook chile peppers under the preheated broiler until the skins are blackened and blistered, 5 to 8 minutes. Place in a bowl and tightly seal with plastic wrap. Allow peppers to steam as they cool, about 20 minutes. Remove and discard skins.

  • Transfer chile peppers to a large stockpot. Add 4 cups water, corn, chicken breasts, carrots, chicken stock concentrate, garlic, cumin, and poultry seasoning. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer chowder until chicken is falling apart, about 1 hour.

  • Remove chicken and green chile peppers from the stockpot. Shred into small pieces and stir back into the chowder.

  • Stir rice and processed cheese into the chowder until cheese is melted, about 5 minutes. Thin chowder with extra water if it appears too thick.

This was a winner! I used homemade Velveeta and 4 Hatch Chiles. I served it with a green salad and chips on the side. Very easy to make and we enjoyed it very much. Will make again. Read More
