Reviews for Cheddar, Corn & Potato Chowder
"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."
"Delicious, easy and quick and not made from a can or processed food or cheese."
"This is really quite good!"
"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!"
"Delicious! This was very easy, and very tasty!"
"Easy to prepare, tastes delicious, love the curry--who could ask for a better fall chowder. The chowder-heads in my family loved it. Thanks to Becky for a definite keeper."
