I love that I was able to toss the ingredients in the crock pot and have a hot meal at dinner time!  This Mexican inspired Chicken Chowder was super filling and we had plenty of leftovers for lunch the next day.

  5. I made this for dinner tonight, but instead of a crock pot, I sped up the process by just cooking it in a pot. It took about 1 1/2 hours. I also forgot the velveeta cheese (oops!) but it still turned out so good! The hash browns probably would have been softer and the soup more chowdery if I had used the crock pot. Thanks for the recipe!!
