Fiesta Chicken Chowder

Del Real shredded chicken

Children of all ages loved this chowder. My kids like spicy so I used pepper jack cheese and a medium heat salsa but plain jack and mild salsa could be substituted. The thickness of the chowder is due to the creamed corn so less cream or half and half is used. IT is also a nice fast chowder – served with a salad or even corn bread would round out the meal.
