I had leftover ham and needed a good recipe to pack in my DH's thermos, and this was fantastic. Instead of cooking it on the stove top I cooked it in the crockpot overnight on low, so I didn't pre-cook the potatoes. Half hour before serving I stirred and kept the cover off for it to thicken. Sprinkled with Smoked Hot Paprika. Thank You irayd8u!

We really enjoyed this quick and easy to make chowder. It was wonderful, full of flavor and so smooth and silky. Great use for our leftover ham. Loved the flavor and ease of this recipe that was Made for What's on the Menu? Tag Game. Thank you for sharing.

Everyone loved this chowder. I only used 2 family sized Campbell Cream of Mushroom Soup, 2 cups of milk, 8 oz. of diced ham. And no cayenne pepper. Will use a little bit more corn next time also. Yummy to our tummy's.
