Midwest Chowder

Top Review by Missyb33

This chowder is tasty, creamy, cheesy, and hearty. It's great for a day where there is a little nip in the air. I followed the recipe exactly except for adding some corn that I had leftover from a previous meal. The chowder is easy to make and packs tons of flavor. Yum!
