Country Potato Chowder Recipe

This creamy comforting chowder is thick with potatoes, carrots, green beans and corn. My mother served it on chilly evenings with warm French bread. Leftovers, if there are any, taste just as good and make a great lazy-day lunch. -Sara Phillips, Topeka, Kansas

Everyone in the family loves this soup!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 5, 2013

I found this recipe to be a few too many steps for my taste, especially when you consider it's a doctored up canned soup recipe. It also thickened up too much and was a gloppy mess the next day, but maybe that was just me adjusting to my new cast iron Dutch oven.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 16, 2011

I made a few changes to the recipe; but my boys both had seconds. Wonderful recipe and easy to make.
