Curry gives this just the right amount of zip without being overpowering. I especially like all the veggies in the recipe. My kids always loved it, even when they were young, and I always had to make a double or triple batch to make sure we had enough leftovers.—Becky Ruff, McGregor, Iowa

"If one likes curry, then this is the chowder for you. While I like it, I don't want an abundance of it. I halved the amount and it was perfect (for me). This is the first chowder recipe that has to be pureed. I just did a flash puree so I could have chunks in the chowder."

"Hi creamers!

Cheese is measured by weight, not volume. An 8 oz brick of cheese shredded will equal about 2 cups in volume."

"Just giving this two stars as I haven't tried it yet, but just have one comment. I've always had the impression that there are 8 ounces in one cup, and since this calls for 2 cups of cheese, should that not be 16 ounces, not 8?"

"An excellent chowder! I omitted the curry and used pesto instead. I didn't puree it, either. It's great as a chunky soup. This is a new favorite!"

"This is amazing chowder! The first time I made this I did not have green pepper and had to use dry parsley. I also added leftover turkey from Thanksgiving. I also did not puree the chowder. This was a big hit with my family and was gone in no time!"

"I am not a curry fan so only put half the amount of curry into the dish. Half the curry gave the soup the perfect zip without tasting of curry. I also didn't puree the soup (the family was too hungry to wait!) and it was delicious. Thanks for the recipe!"
