When we lived in Michigan, this was a perfect comforting soup when blustery winds blew into town. The steaming bowls of soup warmed up icy toes just right! The Taste of Home Test Kitchen came up with this lighter version. —Christine Schenher, San Clemente, California
I serve this cheesy chowder every Christmas or New Year's. Throughout the year, I substitute the potatoes and clams with broccoli and find that even the grandchildren enjoy the taste.
Comfort food at its best! Yes, you can have a warm, homemade bowl of Clam Chowder for dinner tonight. This soup is seasoned expertly and the thyme adds a great dimension of flavor. – Amanda Bowyer, Caldwell, Idaho
Flavored with crab, shrimp and cheddar cheese, this chowder is so good that I make it weekly. Sometimes I substitute chicken or ham for the seafood and leave out the juice. Either way, this pretty soup is a winner.
“I've found this recipe to be a favorite to serve to any of our 23 grandchildren. They always love hot dogs!” This creamy soup features hearty hash browns and vegetables, too. Carolyn Zimmerman - Fairbury, Illinois
