Fiesta chowder submitted by Mom Johnson
I found this recipe hidden in my "piles" is very good and even though the ingredient list is long, it goes together fairly fast. I substituted chicken thighs for the breasts and added more water (try adding a bottle of beer!) as the chowder is fairly thick.

Combine flour and 2 T. fajita seasoning in a zip-lock freezer bag; add the chicken, seal and shake to coat.

Cook the chicken pieces in hot oil in a large Dutch oven over high heat, stirring often, 4 minutes or until browned. Reduce heat to medium-high; add onion and garlic; saute 5 minutes longer. Stir in the remaining seasoning mix, corn and next 5 ingredients, and, if desired, the olives. Bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove lid and stir in the cheese soup, chopped cilantro and lime juice. Garnish as desired and serve with cornbread. Makes 8-10 servings.
