    Great soup! I left out the onions, otherwise made as specified. The yellow pepper and garlic gave this such a rich and hearty flavor. We all really enjoyed this soup - thanks for posting the recipe!

    This is a great chowder Anna. Wow, what flavor and texture in this robust, fresh, tangy tasting soup. You could pick out all the different flavors, none over powered. The cheese and the bacon were a wonderful addition. We enjoyed it so much, that my picky dh even went back for seconds. Kudos for sharing this tasty treat.
