Fiesta Chowder is a soup that we’ve enjoyed for over ten years. My first experience with this delicious recipe was at a baby shower given by my cousin Susan for her then sister-in-law Whitney. Everyone at the shower loved this Southern Living recipe. Not only is this soup tasty, but it’s also quick to prepare.

Be sure to read through the recipe and gather all of the ingredients before you start cooking. I’ve found that it’s easiest to cut up the chicken, onion, and garlic prior to beginning the recipe procedure.
Combine flour and 2 tablespoons fajita seasoning in a heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag; add chicken. Seal and shake to coat. Cook chicken in hot oil in a large Dutch oven over high heat, stirring often, 4 minutes or until browned.
Reduce heat to medium-high; add onion and garlic; sauté 5 minutes.
Stir in remaining fajita seasoning, corn, next 5 ingredients, and, if desired, olives. Bring mixture to a boil; reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer 5 minutes.
Remove lid, and stir in nacho cheese soup, chopped cilantro, and lime juice.
This hearty recipe is so good! I’ve served it for soup parties many times and it is always a hit.
