Smoky Chicken Chowder

October 19, 2011 | By andrea | Comments Off on Smoky Chicken Chowder | Filed in: Chicken, Main Dish, Recipes, Soup/Stew, Southwestern.

I made a few changes to the recipe but nothing that drastically altered the final dish. Instead of a jalapeno chile, I used a little more chopped chipotle chile (which adds both heat and smoky flavor to the soup), a • Read More »

My first thought was, “Do Italian people really eat this at weddings?” I’m not Italian so it’s an honest question, don’t you think? After a little research, though, I learned that the “wedding” part refers to the fact that the vegetables and meat go well together in this Italian-American soup (hence the marriage). Whatever the history, it’s • Read More »
