This was very tatsy. I would have liked it a little thicker, but that is a pewrsonal prefrence and could have been my cheese. It kinda clumped in the chowder so I'll try a different brand next time. I even forgot to put the bacon in at the end and didn't really miss it ...very good! I might even add a smidge of garlic next time ( I have a need for it in everything!)
