Delicious! It makes a thick soup, but if you want it thinner just stir in more milk to desired consistency.
If you like it REALLY thick this recipe is for you. I loved the simplicity of the recipe and all the ingredients however it was just way too thick for us. It reminded me of a very thick cheese sauce with veggies and ham. If I make this again I would 1/2 the amounts of butter and flour.
I fixed this in my IP so I cooked it a tad different than written to accommodate. I did add a can of corn and a few drops of tobasco sauce. Yum.
My favorite ham chowder now. I'll definitely be making this for the long winter months to come. I may have added a little more cheese than the recipe called for.
Soups are my go-to meals in the winter time. This one will be in the rotation. Thick, creamy and comforting!
I would make this again. It did get really thick at end so I added half n half. Whole family liked this. Which is very rare!!
I have made this recipe many times and it is a favorite, especially with my husband. I usually cut the cheese down to 2 cups and cut the milk down to 3 cups. I put this together a bit differently in that I don't drain the vegetables and I eliminate the butter (and the step of making the white sauce) by mixing the flour with the milk and stirring it into the boiling vegetables. I shake the flour and milk together in one of those Tupperware® shakers. If preferred, one could substitute 3 Tablespoons of cornstarch for the flour.A very hearty, delicious soup. One could accompany it simply with bread or crackers and maybe some raw vegetables.
