"This thick colorful chowder was so well received the first time I made it that some of us had to go without seconds," notes Kera Bredin of Vancouver, British Columbia. "Now I make this hearty soup often."
When out-of-state friends dropped by, I invited them to stay for dinner, knowing that I could put together this mild, chili-flavored soup in a jiffy. I served it with cornmeal muffins and a crisp salad for a filling meal everyone loved. My guests even asked for the recipe before leaving!

I'm always on the lookout for easy soups because my husband and I love them, particularly in the winter months. This cream chowder gets a little kick from cayenne and chopped jalapeno pepper. Extra servings freeze very well.
Savory and satisfying, this thick chili-like soup has a mild taco flavor and eye-appealing color. "It comes together quickly and always brings compliments," says Marylou von Scheele from University Place, Washington. "A meal in itself, the recipe can easily be doubled to make more servings."
“My family really enjoys this recipe. It's super fast, easy and filling. Even my little grandson like it!” The fat-free evaporated milk stands in beautifully for calorie-laden cream. Eileen Robitaille - Riverside, California
