Fiesta Chowder

I tasted this chowder at a friends house and it is delicious! It's a Southern Living recipe with a lot of ingredients but easy to make.
  • 3 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 (1.4 oz) pkg. fajita seasoning, divided
  • 4 Skinned and boned chicken breast halves, cubed
  • 3 Tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 Medium onion, chopped
  • 1 Teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 (15-1/4 oz.) can whole kernel corn with red and green peppers, drained
  • 1 (15 oz.) can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 (14-1/2 oz.) can Mexican-style stewed tomatoes
  • 1 (4.5 oz.) can chopped green chiles
  • 3 Cups water
  • 1 Cup uncooked instant brown rice
  • 1 (2-1/4 oz.) can sliced ripe olives (optional)
  • 1 (10-3/4 oz.) can condensed nacho cheese soup
  • 3 Tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 Tablespoon lime juice
  • Garnish: chopped fresh cilantro
  • Breadsticks (optional)

Combine flour and 2 tablespoons fajita seasoning in a heavy-duty, zip-lock plastic bag; add chicken. Seal and shake to coat.

Stir in remaining fajita seasoning, corn, next 5 ingredients, and , if desired, olives. Bring mixture to a boil; reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer 5 minutes. Remove lid and stir in nacho cheese soup, chopped cilantro, and lime juice. Garnish, if desired and serve with breadsticks.
