The family loved this and it is a good, hearty soup that is very flavorful. I think next time, I will forgo the frozen veggies and just chop up my own. I wish the nutrition info was posted. I'm estimating 245 calories per 1 cup serving (source, My Fitness Pal). We had this with a tossed green salad.
I didn't follow the recipe exactly. I used some frozen peas and fresh carrots I had on hand. I didn't have evaporated milk. So I put in a can of Chicken Stock (my kids don't like their soup too milky tasting). I also let out the hot sauce. I will be making it again.
This is such a great recipe to keep in your fall-winter rotation. I change it up each time I make it depending on what veggies and meat I have. One of our favorite additions is red potatoes and mushrooms. Try adding grilled chicken for extra protein!
Excellent chowder! I couldn't find the frozen onion/pepper/celery mixture at the store so I used fresh. Very easy to throw everything together and tastes great the next day too.
Excellent! We rated this a 9 out of 10, will make again and again. Served it while my family was in town Thanksgiving weekend and it was a huge hit! Would change nothing. We used 1 1/2 tsp of the hot sauce and the heat was perfect.
