Soup Swap

We love soup! So I am so excited to participate in this fun swap hosted by Turkeycookies!

This is one of our family's favorite soups for the colder months. I found it in a Taste of Home magazine several years ago.
Mexican Chicken Corn Chowder. I am giving you the link so you can print off the recipe in a nice format. I make this chowder after I have been to Costco and bought one of their rotisserie chickens. I make fajitas one night and then the next night I make this chowder with whatever is leftover. Sometimes it may have a lot of chicken, sometimes not so much. Yummy creamy goodness!
Mexican Corn Chowder
1 1/2lbs boneless chicken, shredded
1/2 c onion - chopped
1-2 garlic cloves
3T butter
2 chicken bullion cubes
1c water
1/2t cumin
2c Half & Half
2c Monterrey Jack Cheese - Shredded
1 can cream corn
1 can green chilies
1 med tomatoes - chopped
Makes 6-8 servings

This recipe is very forgiving. Last night I used frozen corn instead of cream corn and added a can of cream of chicken. Still awesome.

And just because I am feeling generous I will also give y'all a favorite corn muffin recipe too. This corn bread uses a yellow cake mix in it so the corn bread is sweet. YUM!

Green Chili Corn Muffins
1 (8 1/2oz) pkg of corn bread/muffin mix (Jiffy)
1 (9oz) pkg of yellow cake mix (Jiffy)
2 eggs
1/2c milk
1/3c water
2T Vegetable Oil
1 can chopped green chili (4oz)
1c shredded cheddar cheese
Combine mixes. In a separate bowl mix eggs, milk, water and oil. Stir in dry ingredients just until moistened. Add the chilies and 3/4c of cheese. Fill greased muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake at 350 for 20-22 minutes or until done. Immediately sprinkle with the remaining cheese. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans. Serve warm. Makes 16.

I like how you can use one of the rotisserie chickens from the grocery to save on time. I'm definitely printing this recipe.

This sounds so good and I love the idea of using the rotisserie chicken. I wish my daughter wasn't allergic to corn, cause this sounds like it could be a real regular for me.

This is on my list to try for our next family dinner. Thanks for sharing...

How 'bout you just make it ship it off to know...sort of like a care-package from home during college days ;)
Hope you're having a great day!
