I actually made this recipe from the Taste of home mag too since i saw it on here figured i would rate it anyway! its a VERY easy and comforting soup to make and a favorite in our house! love it! the only changes i do is I add extra spice to it like some sage and cilantro flakes, also I have to triple this recipe as the original is sooo not enough for us!!!
I made this soup as written except I didn't have any carrots so left them out. The soup was just a little bland for us. Needed something. I used Uncle Ben's Long Grain and Wild Rice so added the seasoning package to the chowder and it just really kicked it up a notch. This was really nice and so easy to make. Thanks.
