Tempt My Tummy… Mexican Chicken Corn Chowder

by Lisa on October 22, 2012

With such a busy Fall schedule, I am looking to what is quick and tasty to help feed my family.  Today, I am making one of our Fall and Winter favorites.  Mexican Chicken Corn Chowder is so awesome!  I am so excited to be eating it tonight.  I previously  shared this recipe HERE in 2010.   I hope you will indulge me as I re-post it today.  I promise, you will love it!

Mexican Corn Chowder with Chicken-Recipe at http://www.blessedwithgrace.net

Mexican Chicken Corn Chowder

  • 4 chicken breasts, (skinless and boneless)
  • 3 Tbsp butter
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 1/2 tsp. minced garlic
  • 2 cups half & half
  • 2 cups Monterrey jack (or Cheddar/Jack) cheese, shredded
  • 2 (14 oz) cans cream style corn
  • 1 (4 oz) can chopped green chilies
  • 1/2 tsp. Tabasco
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 2 Tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped,

Cut chicken breasts into bite-size pieces. Melt butter in large soup pot (or Dutch oven) over medium high heat; add chicken, onion, and garlic. Saute for 10 minutes. Stir in half & half, cheese, cream corn, green chilies (don’t drained), Tabasco, salt, and cumin. Cook over low heat, stirring often, for 15 minutes. Stir in cilantro and serve. (Makes 2 quarts)
(Another option, top with some fresh pico de gallo, instead of just cilantro.)

Thanks for hosting the link-up! I was also wondering if this soup is pretty hot, spice wise. I would love to try it but it looks like it could be a bit spicy and I’m guessing my 4 yr. old might not enjoy that! Maybe I can make it and cut back on the hot stuff.

Good Morning!

This week I shared another little-bother recipe – cinnamon swirl oat bread. So delicious with a smear of butter!

I also shared an article I wrote explaining how flour can go sour, and how grain bugs get into our food.
Have a great week!

The bread sounds wonderful…. Also, I am looking forward to the good info on flour. Thanks for joining us today.

Oooo that looks good! I make a similar corn chowder, but I love the addition of the Mexican twist and the protein of the corn. Yum! I’ll be making a version of this soon.


Lisa October 23, 2012 at 4:43 pm

Thanks Michelle. It is yummy. And, if you don’t like the heat – just leave out the Tabasco, but keep the green chilies and cumin. You still get that Mexican flavor. YUM!

Hello Lisa! Thank you for being our hostess! Hmm I love all the fall selections here.

Today I linked my newest post, “A New England Breakfast”, where I share a scrumptious autumn breakfast and talk about how traveling changes your perspective!

Have a blessed week!
