Creamy, cheesy, and comforting chicken chowder with green chiles.Green Chile Chicken Chowder
Sundays are the best, aren’t they?  Saturdays are for being productive, running errands, getting some socializing in, and then Sundays are for relaxing.  They’re for sleeping in, staying in your pajamas and slippers all day, doing some reading, really whatever you want.  It’s the best.  Another thing I like to do on Sundays is make a big pot of soup or a casserole for dinner, with leftovers to eat throughout the week.  Since the weather has started to turn cold the past couple of weeks, I have started back up this habit and this chowder was this weeks pick.  I took a couple of recipes that had sounded good and combined them to make a big pot of delicious.
This chowder is pretty much the definition of comfort food.  It is hearty, creamy, cheesy, filling, and full of delicious things like bacon and cheese.  Oh and there are some veggies in there too.  It’s all about balance, ya know?  But seriously, this soup is stellar.  And best made on a chilly Sunday afternoon in your slippers.

  • 1 green bell pepper diced
  • 2 stalks celery diced
  • 2 Russet potatoes peeled and cubed

  • 2 cups shredded chicken I used a rotisserie chicken
  • salt and pepper to taste
