I love soups of all types and on a cold day I had a hankerin' for a good chowder but couldn't find a recipe that satisfied my craving so to speak, so I created this one. This is a spiced up version of a chicken, corn and potato chowder with a definite Tex-Mex influence. I used peppers that I had grown myself and frozen for use in soups. Enjoy!
