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!

    This sounds like a tasty dip, and I love that it’s so colorful! I can definitely relate – I’m not into the Superbowl game this year (we recently moved, too, and I prefer college football), but I am ALL about the food!

      Were you guys moving during the holidays? We moved into our apartment on 12/21. It was rough… Even when it’s teams that I like, it’s still mostly about the food 🙂

    We didn’t move as recently as you! We made our move in October…and I’m just starting to feel settled. It is rough… Of course, the kitchen was the first room put together!

    Approximately how much collard greens do you need? Can you use canned? This sounds terrific…like a soul food dip!

      Sorry about that. Missed a key ingredient in the recipe. I updated it now. I used a pound of fresh collard greens. I haven’t tried it with canned. Let me know how it goes if you do.

    I’m so not into the Super Bowl this year either, but I can always get behind some football food. I’m still trying to decide what to make for next weekend. This dip sounds so good!
