    Cookin'Diva's Note:

    A satisfying comfort food that can be jazzed-up with the same toppings you would put on a baked potato (cheese, green onions, bacon). This is a great soup for a pot-luck, because it is universally enjoyed by kids and adults. NOTE: The original version called for Half 'N Half, but I've found that milk works just fine.

      We really enjoyed this. The flavor is very similar to my WW baked potato soup but this has more fat etc. I made the soup before the recipe was changed and the direction were different. So I have some yellow corn added into my soup. I used half-and-half which the recipe called for before the change. Very delicious soup. Thanks for posting. Made for PAC Fall 2008

      Outstanding Soup ! Wow and wow again ! I made this on Saturday afernoon and enjoyed it for 3 days! I followed the recipe carefully and only change I made was to add the bacon into the soup. This has become my new favourite potato bacon chowder! Thanks, Diva, for a terrific soup that I will add to my other repeat recipes!
