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!

    I definitely look forward to corned beef every year. Yours looks awesome. We actually trekked to CT this year for my mom’s corned beef and cabbage. And I got to take some leftovers home to make corned beef hash!

    Hi! I would like to try this for Saint Patrick’s Day this year and wanted to verify that the liquid ingredients added to the dutch oven are not brought to a simmer on the stovetop before being placed in the oven?

      Yep! Just dump it in and throw it in the oven.
