I came up with this recipe myself when I had a ham hock and wanted to make something other than the usual split pea soup. The resulting chowder was satisfying and good-tasting. Mashed potatoes help give it a rich, creamy texture.

"It was a great tasting chowder. I made one little adjustment because my family likes a little kick so I added some cayenne pepper. Made it wonderful for my family"
