Cheddared Farmhouse Chowder

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by SarahBeth

I found this at TLC while looking for something else and I am glad I did! This makes a great weeknight meal because it uses quick prepared ingredients. I just use whatever frozen mixed veggies I have on hand. This is not gourmet, but it is warm and filling and very good. I serve in bread bowls or with crusty french bread on the side.

This was a tasty soup...I know it is supposed to be a chowder but I added chicken broth as well so for me it was soup ;) also added a little garlic because we are garlicaholics. DH took it for lunch these last 2days and people kept popping their heads in to say "what smells so good?" It was such a nice change from the Potato Soup I make. I loved sprinkling on the cheese and letting it melt a little into the soup and scooping it back up with my bagel type crackers.
