Stovetop Mexican Chicken Corn Chowder {The Best}

This Stovetop Mexican Chicken corn chowder is the best. It’s one of my favorite recipes in the Fall, when the weather starts cooling down and you want something to warm your soul. It’s comfort food at it’s finest.

It’s thick, rich, and has a touch of kick from the tabasco sauce, which is completely optional for this homemade chowder.

We love all things soup and chowder once the cooler weather is upon us.

This is a must make homemade chowder recipe and goes well with our Sweet Cornbread Recipe, or if you like your cornbread with a little kick, try our Sweet Jalapeno Cornbread.
