MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 4, 2013

When making this soup,I doubled the recipe. I did not have bacon, so I used bacon bits ( real ) in a jar, and saute them in 1 tbl . of veg. oil. I also added chopped celery and carrots with onion and saute in bacon oil. then I added it to potatoes to boil. I also doubled water , to use less milk. instead of flour, cornstarch was handy.turned out very good !

Very Good; used Chicken Broth instead

MY REVIEW

This turned out to be more of a soup consistency rather than chowder. If you want a thicker chowder like potato soup I would recommend adding a little more flour. I also thought the chowder needed a little more flavor so I added more cheese and a little bit of cayenne pepper. Turned out great.

Incredible soup! This was not too hard to make and was really good cold-weather comfort food. I added more salt just before serving.
