This was so easy to put together, and quick too (once the potatoes cooked). I made with 1% milk and didn't have monterey jack cheese so used a combo of mozzarella and provolone. I made a 2-serving batch and it was the perfect amount for lunch today with a bowl leftover for tomorrow. I liked how the corn muffin mix thickened it up quickly. Made for PRMR.
What a great tasting soup! I didn't use whole milk [2% instead]; did use low sodium chicken broth; didn't add any additional salt; & after all that I DID pretty much follow the recipe & had a great tasting chowder! Thanks for sharing! [Tagged, made & reviewed for Please Review My Recipe cooking game]

I am the mother of four boys--two sons and two stepsons. I am also the grandmother of one very sweet and precocious 3 yr old boy. I was once a healthcare administrator but quit a few years ago to stay home with my youngest. Since he has started to school, I am back to working part time. <br> Next to my family, cooking is my passion. I have a wonderful husband who will try anything. He is my biggest fan and a discerning critic. A couple of years ago, we started a dinner club with friends who enjoy our passion for good food. We have shared many wonderful meals together. <br> My favorite cookbook would have to be a family cookbook that my mom and cousin and I put together a couple of years ago. We shared all the favorites that had been passed down through the generations as well as new favorites. <br> My biggest pet peeve is picky eaters who refuse to try anything new. It bothers me more with adults than with kids, but I love that my six year old will eat just about anything I put in front of him. There is something very gratifying about "grooming" the next generation of foodies. <br><img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <br><img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/smPACp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <br><img src="http://i147.photobucket.com/albums/r317/j_welcome/pics2/food/PRMRcopy.jpg"> <br><img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/Zaar%20World%20Tour%204/ZWTAB-tg.gif">
