"Our family requests this creamy chowder for Christmas Eve supper," reports Marlene Muchenhirn of Delano, Minnesota. "We enjoy it with a pot of chili, raw veggies, breadsticks and an array of baked goodies. It's an easy-to-serve and easy-to-clean-up meal between our church service and gift exchange."
