Fall weather has arrived in Central Illinois, and along with the chillier temperatures comes a desire for hearty and warming soups. The pumpkin patches are doing a brisk business and made me think of of pumpkin soup. Hope you like this hearty, main dish chowder! I like to use ground chicken, but cubed chicken breasts also work well.
