Cheesy Potato Chowder Recipe

This chowder was invented by my niece, who took a basic potato soup recipe and added some of her own ingredients. The results were "souperb"! I was a cook at the time, and I tried her recipe at work. It was the hit of the season!

  • 8 to 12 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
