The Dove's Nest Texas Chowder

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 30 mins

Another Dove's Nest favorite, from their cookbook. The cookbook says, "During the winter months, this is one of our most popular soups - a chowder hearty enough to be served as a one-course meal." I'm just guessing at prep and cooking time - the cookbook didn't note it, and I've never made the soup myself, just eaten it at the restaurant. It is absolutely delicious, and one of my favorite things that they serve.

I can see why this is one of your favorite items! Wonderful flavor and very easy to make. Used frozen stir-fry peppers and onions. Browned the sausage, onion and peppers together, drained the grease, added the corn then used the immersion blender for a finer texture. Followed recipe from there time (and there will be a next time) I may add a diced potato (or frozen hash browns)for more potato. Thanks for submitting!

Great Soup and very comforting. Super easy and has a wee kick which is nice. My photo does not include the cheese as I am freezing and want to add when I reheat. Thanks

This was a great soup. There was just a bowl left and my DH beat me to it. I thought it was perfect the way it was, My DH asked for more sausage the next time. Thanks for the keeper.
