Two Potato Chowder

My step mom made this soup for us last year when we were visiting. It’s very tasty and filling. And, it’s easy to whip up! Don’t forget the shredded cheese and bacon to sprinkle on top of the soup when you serve it. This will warm you up to the core on these cold and nasty days we’ve been having!

    Oops! ingredients list omits shrimp and corn. Sounds intriguing tho and I’ll experiment.

    I enjoy reading your recipes and have tried quite a few to great success.

    Altho I no longer live there (thanks endless winter!) I grew up in MA so I enjoy your short bio. Great site.

      Thanks for pointing this out! You’re right the shrimp and corn aren’t in the recipe. I’ll update it now.

      The winters are ruthless in MA for sure!

    Thanks for responding, Wicked Awesome. And thanks for indicating the amount of shrimp to be used.

    But the amount of corn is still missing in the ingredients list although its included in the directions … so I’ll improvise. Thanks for a great recipe.

    Sorry to be such a pain in the patootie.

      Sorry for all the confusion! I didn’t use corn when I made this recipe. The original recipe called for 1 cup of frozen corn.
