Recipe Roundup-Warming Me Up

I LOOOOVE soups, chowders, and chili's during the cold weather. In my area we are having some cold weather in deed. There is something so comforting and warming to have a pot of simmering soups, chowders, and chili's to wrap up the end of the day. Throw some rolls and salad and you have a good meal. Yes, MAM!

This is a family favorite and it is so good.

Cheesy Ham and Cheddar Chowder

10 Bacon Strips
1 large onion
1 cup diced carrots
3 T. flour
3 Cups milk
1 1/2 cup water
2 1/2 cups of cut up peeled potatoes
1 can corn (drained)
2 chicken bouillon cubes
pepper to taste
2 cups of shred cheddar
2 cups fully cooked ham

In a large soup pot cook the bacon until crisp. Drain bacon, saute onion and carrot in bacon drippings. Stir in flour until well blended. Gradually add milk and water. Bring to boil, cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Add potatoes, corn, bouillon, and pepper. Reduce heat; simmer uncovered for 20 minutes, or until potatoes are tender. Add cheese and ham. Heat until cheese is melted. Stir in bacon.This recipe was in Quick Cooking (Oct 2000).

That soup sounds delicious. And even better it sounds like something my Hubs would eat.

Wow, that sounds great (and I don't even really like chowders)!
We'll have to give this a try.

Blessings, Regina

It is always a hit. Every year my church asks me to make this for our bonfire in October. It is usually all gone very quick. men like it because it is hardy and kids because it is cheesy.

That sounds really yummy - we love anything with cheese and bacon. I'll be trying that one out soon!

I just posted another soup recipe on my blog because a friend wanted the recipe, so I thought I'd add it here in case anyone comes back looking for more ideas. It's Cheeseburger soup, and it's quite yummy!
