    Mark H.'s Note:

    After looking at many cheese soup and chowder recipes, I decided to try making my own combination of both. The bechamel sauce makes it a thicker than some soups and chowders, but hey, we like it that way.

      Awesome tasty treat for a cold winters day! It makes a huge pot, so I am going to freeze the rest for later. Next time I make this I will probably cut the chicken broth down to 1 cup to make it slightly thicker for my taste, I will probably also cut the cayenne pepper down to 1/2 tsp also. It's great, but I'm just a little bit of wimp when it come to spicyness. Thanks for the great recipe Mark!!
