Family Chowder (Microwave)

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Mandy

This soup is so yummy & much quicker to put together than stove-top soup. This one is even a hit with my 19 month old daughter & not much is these days. Real comfort food for a cold autumn or winters day!

This is a nice, flavorful soup that is quick to make, even though I did not use the microwave. I ended up making this on the stove-top, and it was so easy. The chowder is quite thick (as it should be) and has a sweet taste from the corn. I think the sweet potato was a really nice touch. Thanks for sharing this.
