You know me...always on the lookout for ways to use green chilies. Thanks to my great MIL, I have fresh, frozen green chili in my freezer. I thawed some out to to do something with and this soup turned out to be the perfect vehicle in which to use it. It happened to be a cloudy, cold-ish day here in SC so this chowder was extra good! IT Guy had a couple of bowls....and took some to work for lunch the next day. There's only a small amount left over to have as a snack but I have no doubt it won't last long.
