When I think of chowder I always thinks of a thick creamy base. I know that all chowders aren’t that way, but being that is what “chowder” meant to me going up, that is where my head goes when I hear the word. I recently tried out the chicken chili bean chowder using Bush’s chili beans.
I must admit their chili beans are my favorite bean to use in cooking, next would be their black beans. I love that they come soaked in seasonings. This chowder does have milk used in the base but isn’t thick and heavy. It is more brothy with the addition of milk. This richens the broth, but there are not heavy thickeners uses so it still stays nice and light.
Even though the base is light they are plenty of veggies in addition to the beans to still make this chowder filling. It was delicious and a nice change from what I think of a “chowder”.
