  • 3 Tablespoons Olive oil
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 2 potatoes washed and cubed
  • ½ bag baby carrots chopped
  • 2 stalks celery diced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper diced
  • 3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • 32 ounces frozen corn
  • ½ pkg taco seasoning mix
  • ½ cup salsa


  • Drizzle olive oil into the bottom of a large, lidded soup pot. Place over medium heat.
  • Add chopped onion, carrots, celery, and minced garlic. Cover pot with lid and cook for about 5 minutes.
  • Remove stems, seeds, and membrane from jalapeno pepper. Dice pepper finely and add to other vegetables.
  • Cube chicken breasts and potatoes and add to vegetables. Add 1 cup of broth, cover pot with lid and cook for about 10 minutes.
  • Combine milk, the rest of the broth, taco seasoning, and salsa and stir well. Add to chowder.
  • Open packages of frozen corn and add to the chowder.
  • Sprinkle dried thyme into chowder and stir to combine.
  • Cover pot with lid and simmer over low heat for about 20 minutes.
  • I served mine in bread bowls, but can be served in any bowl.


This is a recipe that definitely freezes well.
Prepare the soup as the recipe directs (cooked an all) and freeze in an airtight container. (We recommend containers, more than ziplock bags, but a ziplock would work as well).
The day before serving, place the frozen container in the fridge, to thaw.
Before dinner, place it in a stock pot, or slow cooker to allow it to heat up.
