Wonderful! Talk about comfort food, this is it! Perfect for a cold winter day. I made this exactly as stated, it is so easy to make and so flavorful. Loved the combination of cheese and vegtables. Thank you for a great recipe, Theresa!!
This was a delicious chowder. I made a few changes though, I added some \
I made this as a way to use up a bunch of vegetables that I got in my organic produce delivery. I used 3 cups of vegetable broth (instead of the bouillon and water) and it came out a little thick for our liking, even for a chowder. I added some broth to thin in out a bit and it was much better. Very good flavor and easy to make. Thanks for posting!
