Fiesta Chowder

Fiesta Chowder by Sweet Pea

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.

Fiesta Chowder Ingredients

 

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.
