This is a quick and simple recipe for potato chowder. I threw in 2 cups of fresh garden broccoli into the chowder instead of serving it as a topping. The recipe tells you how to make it using Pampered Chef products, but I boiled my potatoes on the stove and heated the cream cheese and milk mixture on the stove after combining. I didn't use the microwave. I thought it needed a little something extra for flavor, and I added regular onions, garlic, and cayenne pepper to the ingredients listed below, but you decide. I also used a handful of green onions instead of 2 or 3. If you're cooking for someone who is picky about ingredients, this is the recipe for you. Recipe is posted as if you have the Pampered Chef kitchen gadgets, but keep in mind they're not required for this recipe.
