- Cook bacon in a large skillet and over medium heat, turning occasionally, until crispy, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate with a slotted spoon, leaving bacon grease in the skillet. Crumble bacon when cool to the touch.
- Add celery and garlic to the skillet and cook in the bacon grease until celery is tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Add cauliflower, water, and onion powder; cover skillet to steam cauliflower. Cook, stirring every so often, until cauliflower is tender, about 5 minutes.
- Add milk, 1 3/4 cups chicken broth, and hot sauce. Bring to a boil.
- Meanwhile, whisk flour into the remaining chicken broth in a small bowl and drizzle into the boiling chowder. Add Cheddar cheese and 1/2 of the crumbled bacon. Stir until smooth and cheese has melted.
- Season with salt, pepper, and hot sauce. Ladle into bowls and top with remaining bacon.

- Cook's Notes:
- Use any type of bacon you'd like, such as turkey, low-sodium, or precooked.
- You can use a food processor for the celery, garlic, and cauliflower if you prefer. I originally hand chopped all the ingredients, but the chowder was too chunky, so I started finishing it with my blender.
- If you'd like a smoother chowder, use a blender before adding the Cheddar cheese and bacon. Fill blender halfway with chowder. Cover and hold lid down with a potholder; pulse a few times before leaving on to blend to desired consistency. Pour into a pot. Repeat with remaining chowder.
