1/2 Pound of Jalapeno Cheese

Chop Chop Chop!!!

If its solid chop it up.  The veggies, the meat, and  the cheese.  About a 1/4 inch dice for all of it. Precision doesnt matter so long as there are no fingers in it.

Step 3: Divide and Conquer

Take half of the veggies and put them on a lightly greased pan.  Then stick them Suckas in the broiler.  If youre feeling adventurous and want more flavor throw those bad boys on the grill.  Its a little too blizzardy here today for me to do that.

Step 4: Caramelize... carmalize... brown it!

HIGH HEAT!!!!

Add some butter or olive oil or whatever you have around and like to a big ole pot. 

Let it melt and get nice and hot.

Toss the rest of the veggies in the pot and let the caramelize.  

Let'em sit there!  Quit stirring so much!

Step 5: I Feel Like Chicken Tonight!

Once the veggies are nice and browned add the chicken.

Toss it around a bit and then just like before let it sit!
Let that high heat brown the chicken real nice.

Quick! check on the broiling veggies!  Are they nice and toasty?  When the tips are starting to char their about done.

Timing being what it is my veggies were done about the same time my chicken was browned.

Step 6: Corn that Chowda

Add the bag of corn

Pour that box of broth in

Season it as you like.

I used salt, pepper, paprika, and celery salt.

Step 7: Cheese and Beer! Cheese and Beer!

Add the Beer and bring it to a boil.  Any beer will do, I used PBR because its a working mans beer.

Once it starts boiling its time to Cheese it!

Careful now this part gets tricky.  You gotta keep it boiling while you add the cheese.

Add a little bit at a time.  Wisk Wisk WIsk.  Little bits of cheese, if you add too much at a time it gets lumpy.

Wisk it!  Wisk it Good!

This looks and sounds super good. Now to figure out where to get a Poblano Pepper form and also some Jalepeno Cheese (the later should be easier). Can't wait to try. :)

This looks like a hearty meal type soup. Does it come out very thick or can it be thickened if it does not. I cant wait to add this to my soup variety to keep ready made in the freezer. Do you know if it freezes well?
