Great start for a soup recipe. If you want thicker soup use less water and puree some of the potatos. If you want more flavor use stock or broth instead of some of the water and saute the onion. If you want to add a veggie try asparagus...it's good. Add salt and pepper to your own taste. If you ever want to add a little zip to a soup try some wine (in the soup) or vinegar. Read More

This was super easy but it tasted terrible. It was too thin not enough corn. It had no taste. Read More

This was very easy and good but I agree with those who rated it too bland and thin. The bland part is easy to take care of just be creative with the spices! (I added salt and fresh ground pepper Old Bay and some Emeril's "bam" mix which has paprika in it.) I'd make it again because it's so easy and way better and more homemade tasting than heating up a can of soup! Next time however I might drain some of the water off the potatoes so it's thicker...that might do it. Read More

Whom ever recipe this is I think you should add a little more flavor to your chowder... It does not take that much longer to add a few more ingredients.. Read More

This is absolutely wonderful. I have made this soup several times and vary it each time. I used leftover ham once and bacon another time and cheese a third time. My husband will eat anything I cook but he raved about this. Read More

I am from Atlantic Canada and this is the recipe my grandmother and mother and I all use and we love it. We also add a can of niblets corn a couple of diced carrots and what really makes the difference is about a tablespoon of butter on top!It's even better the second day. Read More

I have to agree this was a bit bland but really not too bad warming on a cold day and very easy to make. In the end I did add some thyme sage and pepper. For those with the "too thin" problem -- I saw this coming so I only barely covered the potatoes to cook them and I mean to the point that corners of cubes were peeping through and then stirred them often while cooking. All the water was soaked up this way. As someone else already said mashing them a bit is good too. Read More
