Mexican Chicken Chowder

It's been a while since we shared a recipe that perfectly pairs with the immaculate kick of heat and flavor only to be found in our Fuegorita dry pepper mix. So we're bringing you one of our co-founders' favorite homemade dishes (Hi Carmen!) as part of our weekly #FuegoritaFriday series.

See below for the recipe and be sure to check our Instagram for the mouthwatering pics!

Happy Friday!
