    I cut the pepper amounts in half and left out the chilies- it was still HOT!!! Good, but hot :) Next time, I will reduce it even more and use chicken!! Great recipe :) - 10/9/08

    I ended up throwing most of the pot away as it way very spicy , and I even used way less peppers/cilies. I ate one serving but had to eat bread with it to fight the burn! - 9/26/08

    Delicious. I agree that it's a bit too spicy though. I would recommend cutting back on the green chillies and the red and black pepper, at least until you try it. Serving size turns out to be about 1-1/2 cups! Thanks! - 9/13/08

    Loved it! I noticed that you had nonfat evaporated milk listed as an ingredient under the nutritional calculations, but not on the main page (above). Anyways, I added the milk and it was soooooooo YUMMY! I also added a bit of minced garlic too. Thanks for the great recipe! :) - 9/22/08

    Has anyone REALLY tried this?? Common sense told me the TBSP of peppers should be TEASPOONS!!! I USED TEASPOONS AND IT WAS STILL HOT!!I also added garlic to the onion mix. I would make w/LESS fresh ground black (like 1 -2 tsp) and 1/2 tsp RED pepper, and we like it hot, & less salt, + thyme sprig - 9/17/08

    A little spicy hot, I would recomend cutting back on the green chiles and some of the crushed red pepper. Very taste and a very good portion size too! Thanks. - 9/13/08

    i really like this - however, WHEN i make it again (and i will) i am going to puree the potato/broth mixture before adding the other ingredients to make it thicker. As is, i ended up only using about 2/3 of the evaporated milk. - 10/8/08

    Way too spicy for my family. I will make it again, but with less spice, and maybe add evaporated milk as suggested by others. My 5yr old was so excited until his mouth was on fire. - 9/28/08

    I think this recipe has potential, but it is way too spicy as others have said. I, too, cut down both the black and red pepper before I even tasted it and it was still way too much. I may make it again, but add the pepper in small increments. - 9/24/08

    A little spicy for my hubby, he had to put some crushed up saltines. I cut the black pepper down to just 1 tablespoon. My hubby and I will make it again but we will cut the crushed red pepper down. I will admit that a good thing about spicy food is that it takes you a really long time to eat it! - 9/22/08

    Made this for dinner last night. I did not use the green chilis, and cut the red pepper down to 1 tablesppon and it was still TOO HOT for a chowder. Will definately make it again though, with maybe only a half a tablespoon of red pepper, as the rest of the chowder was very good. - 9/22/08

    The soup is really good and I would recommend it to anyone. Next, however, I'm only using one TBSP of crushed red pepper. 3 TBSP is definitely too much. - 9/17/08

    In place of the canned peppers I used two fresh peppers, one yellow, one green from my garden. I also sprinkled in some Old Bay seasoning. This was so delicious and easy! Go lighter on the crushed red pepper flakes if you want it to taste milder. - 9/13/08

    I subbed a can of evaporated milk for the creamed corn due to gluten concerns and cut the salt content in half...awesome soup! Thanks! - 9/9/08
