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

"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."

"I've made this so many times, and it's the best potato soup I've ever made. I leave out the carrots, corn & green beans though, and it's excellent. Everyone that's had it loves it & wants more."
