One chilly April afternoon, I craved a hearty soup but had less than an hour to prepare a meal. I came up with this chowder that uses pantry ingredients, and everyone thought it hit the spot. —Jenna Rempe, Lincoln, NE

"We really enjoyed this. I freeze a lot of soups since it is only my husband and I. Potatoes don't freeze we'll sometimes so I omitted them. They weren't missed at all. But...I guess it's not a "chowder" anymore!"

"This was fabulous! Very flavorful! My daughters are picky, so I omitted the beans, onion & canola oil. I also was running late on time, so I used canned chicken chunks. I had planned on regular chicken, but honestly, for a last minute substitute, it worked out just fine! I served this with tortilla chips, sour cream and cheese. It's my new favorite soup!"

"I made it for about 20 coworkers and served it with a side of plain egg noodles. It was a hit!"
