    Irish Rose's Note:

    I tend to be a purist and I'm not too keen on any recipe that starts with "cream of". However, this recipe, from Southern Living, is really good. My husband loves it and all my friends have asked for the recipe. Try it and see if you agree.

      Made this for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup ~ Jan-June 2013 tag game. I cut the recipe in half added some minced garlic and celery which I sauteed with the onion then I added some frozen corn with the soup, milk and pepper and followed the rest of the instructions. Oh yes, I used precooked shrimp so I added that the last few minutes of the soup to warm up and not overcook. This is an easy and quick soup and we did enjoy this for the quickness but our cream of soup didn't have many potatoes and I think I would either add some precooked chopped potatoes or make my potatoe soup. I would make this again tho when we are in a hurry. Thank you for posting.

      This chowder brought back soooo many memories!! My mom used to make this when I was growing up, YUMM-O!! I did add some garlic along with the onions, and I had some corn in the fridge I need to use - so I threw that in there too!! WOW! The corn adds a little sweetness and is a perfect compliment!! Thank you for bringing back all of those great memories.....with a quicker way of making it!!
