After trying the most wonderful potato soup at a local market I tried to come home and duplicate it. It didn't turn out exactly the way I wanted but I found my version better. I got the name Potato Chowder soup because when my husband tried it he thought it tasted like a chowder. Also a can of corn could be added as a quick variation. Very tasty and warms the soul on a dreary damp day.

Tasted really nice I added corn. The consistency was a bit watery so I had to use corn starch to thicken it. Will try a dash of hevy whipping cream next time. Read More

Nice flavour but 1 tablespoon of pepper is a bit much. I'd reduced it to less than 1/4 tsp. Read More

I added a bit more carrots and used only 1 1/2 cups of fat free milk. Blended half of the soup & added the bacon bits back in before serving along with fresh dill! YUM!!! Read More

I couldn't find my old recipe from years ago but this seemed to resemble it the closest. I used chucken broth and added a flour thickening to make it a CHOWDER. Very good on a cold fall day. Read More

This had good flavor but is not a chowder. Chowders should be thick and creamy and this was watery and thin. If you want a soup it would be good. Read More

I recommend replacing 1 cup of milk with evaporated milk instead for a velvety texture. This is a great base recipe - and depending upon your taste you can always thicken it with a simple white flour roux. I used fresh chopped onion carrot celery and yellow corn as well. For a heartier variation I might add diced chicken breast next time. Very good! Read More
