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 is fantastic! I added some broccoli for a little more veggies. It's very filling, and it reheats well."

"This was good. I halved the recipe, carefully staying within the correct amount of ingredients. There was not enough liquid in proportion to ham and veggies. This soup was tremendously filling - must be the cheese :)"
