I've made this soup since it was originally published in 2004. It is incredible, and very filling. Perfect for cold MI winters! I substitute cooked diced bacon for the ham. Regular Idaho potatoes work just as well.
There were no stars, so couldn't give it a good rating. Hearts1-if you used Fat Free cheese instead of 2%, it doesn't melt & incorporate well. I often use 2% or FF evaporated milk which gives a nice creaminess with lower fat & calories. Try FF Half'n'Half, too-although I don't always care for it.
I made this over the weekend. It was excellent! I used evaporated milk in place of 2% milk since we were low on milk at the time... turned out great. I served the soup with garlic breadsticks! This recipe is going in my "save" folder. Thanks!!
I have made this many times and always pleasantly surprises me how good it is.
We loved this chowder!! Didn't change a thing, didn't need to. Deliciouss and easy to make. My family loved it. Will make it again and again. It's now in my printed reciped book of favorites. Thanks for posting it.
