Reviews for Cheesy Ham & Corn Chowder
"This was an ok recipe. I didn't find there to much flavor in this."
"I made this for dinner exactly as written. I was skeptical of how long the cooking time was, as my vegetables were likely done at about 6 hours, but that extra cooking time only deepened the flavors. This is delicious comfort food. I also served it with some fresh bread. This is a perfect fall or winter soup!"
"This was very good. I don't think I would let it go for 10 hours. My veggies were done after 8 hours- in fact, they looked like they could have burned if left a bit longer because they were starting to brown. But the recipe was good and my husband and parents all liked it too! Great with a salad and fresh bread for a fall dinner."
