Cheesy Ham Chowder Recipe

Publisher Photo
This recipe is one of my family's favorites. The chowder is chock-full of potatoes, ham and carrots. I like to make this comforting soup at least once or twice a month during the fall and winter. —Jennifer Trenhaile, Emerson, Nebraska

"This recipe is not only delicious but also versatile! Follow the basics but you can vary the veggies. Tonight I added diced zucchini! I cut back a bit on the bacon & cheese but it's still great. What a wonderful recipe for a chilly night!"
