“I teach a college humanities class one night a week and rely on quick recipes to make dinner for my family before I race out the door,” writes Erin Mylroie of St. George, Utah. “This has been a favorite that everyone adores. To save even more time, I often buy chopped onion and bell peppers from the produce section.”
“This is wonderful served over tortilla chips or with corn bread as a side.” Packed with chicken (or turkey) and veggies, this chunky chowder makes a nutritious meal.
