Cheeseburger Chowder Recipe

After tasting a wonderful chowder at a restaurant, I dressed up can of cheese soup to see if I could capture the same flavors. I then took things a step further by adding chilies and Southwestern spices, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. —Lori Risdal Sioux City, Iowa

"I made this for lunch today since I had some leftover taco meat, and it was very tasty! I used the cubed hash browns because that is what I had and I also took one of the reviewers suggestion and added some salsa for added flavor. It was a great way to use my leftover taco meat. I will make this again."

"Made this last night for me and hubby. Next time we will tweask it to our tastes by: using browned cubed hasbrowns for better texture. We did add in Frito's, Taco Bell jarred taco sauce, and sour cream. This is definitely a keeper as it doesn't take very long to make."

"I made this last night for my husband and young daughter. We loved it. I made it according to the receipe above. We discussed the flavors and decided that we would like it better if we used Spicy breakfast sausage instead of ground beef for a more savory flavor. Maybe adding a few dashes of hot sauce for some kick too. We also discussed perhaps adding some yellow sweet corn. I think I will make it again with these changes to see how it turns out. All in all, all three loved it."
