I’m warning you now… I’ve been baking pumpkin treats along with soups and chowders for the last few months! You know what that means, right!? There will be LOADS of delicious fall recipes and creations here on the site in the coming months. Today’s recipe for Creamy Southwest Chicken Chowder happens to be a new favorite. When I saw all the delicious ingredients, I knew it would be a hit, and it was!! It calls for some of the Green Giant Steamers which makes the recipe even easier to make (no cutting up veggies for this one!) You cook up the veggies and then throw it all in a pot with the rest of the ingredients and let it cook for 20 minutes and you’re done. Talk about easy peasy!!

I’ve tried so many new recipes the last few months and this one was a HIT!! The fam loved it, and I know I’ll be making it more often as the temps cool down. If you’re looking for a simple but hearty chowder recipe, this is the one!! It’s so full of flavor and will help welcome fall right in. 🙂

I’ve always been a fan of the “southwest” taste, and think this chowder encompasses the delicious combo of chicken, corn, green chilis and spices!! Mmmm!

This recipe is thicker and is a chowder, but you can always add more milk or water to make it more soup-y – totally up to you!! I’m sure it would be delicious either way! 😉

    Curious…Could you use canned veggies or plain frozen instead of the steamers? Just curious if it would change the taste or consistently.

      Yes, you can. I haven’t tried it, but it shouldn’t change anything. If frozen, still just cook according to directions, then add them. Hope that helps!! Thanks!

    Can this be adapted for the crockpot? Possibly using frozen chicken?
