Soup anyone?

I ran into a friend from church at the grocery store, who told me she was picking up a few things to make soup when she got home. She said this is a recipe her boys ask for and it's quick and easy to make. Of course I asked her to get that recipe to me! I made it last week and it was as quick and easy as she said. It took about 30 minutes to make and we loved it. It tasted even better reheated, so I took some in to work for my friend Nancy to try. She also wanted the recipe, so here it is. Enjoy!
Mexican Chicken Corn Chowder
1 1/2 lb (approx) cubed, cooked chicken (may use Rotisserie chicken of pre-cooked
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 teaspoon garlic
2 tablespoons butter
2 cubes chicken bouillon
1 cup hot water
1 teaspoon ground cumin
2 cups half and half
2 cups shredded Monterrey jack cheese
6 ounce can creamed corn
4 ounce can chopped, green chilies - undrained
1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce (I forgot to add this and it was still good)
1 medium tomato, chopped
In a dutch oven, brown the onion and garlic in butter. Stir in chicken. Dissolve the bouillon in hot water. Add to pan with cumin and bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Add half and half, cheese, corn, chilies and hot pepper sauce. Cover and stir over low heat until cheese is melted. Stir in tomato and serve.

Yum! That sounds good----and I love tried and true recipes.

Guess what one of our meals for the week is going to be?

I have to give that one a try too! We've been having lots of soup lately. Steve's not complaining!

I'm going to try that, thanks. It will probably be our supper tonight. I made 15 bean soup the last time. That might be a few too many beans for my constitution! I won't send the receipe for that one.

Thank you thank you, my husband will really like this one. I had a sample of it from you & even if your not a soup person (my husband isn't) he will like this one

I was just checking out the cinnamon roll receipe, too. Maybe I'll give it a shot. I know it's wonderful.
I'm curious about your name. Do you pronounce it like Marie or Mary? When I was a kid growing up in the foothills of the Appalachian Mts, I remember people pronouncing Mary as Mayree and Sarah was Sayrah. As a young adult, I tried to soften my regional accent. I don't know if it comes with age or what the reason is, but I'm finding that speech pattern seems to be coming back. It's funny to me. Sometimes I hear myself saying things I didn't even know I remembered. I catch myself thinking, 'Did I just say that?' I'm returning to my roots somehow, I think.

I'm making your stew recipe for tonight. Unfortunately with this chowder, I'd have to take out the hot sauce and green chilies. It'd be too hot for Chelsea.
