Chow down

Made my first CHOWDER (2 points)!  I’ve tasted my share of chowders but never attempted to make my own. Took the plunge – it was delicious and easy to do. For vegetarians, just substitute mushrooms for the sausage.

Potato Sausage CHOWDER
2 tablespoons butter
1 small onion, chopped
1 stalk celery, chopped
3/4 small green pepper, chopped
3 cups peeled and diced red potato
1 Earl Campbell hot link, sliced (or another brand)
2 cups chicken broth
1/2 teaspoon Italian herbs (or thyme)
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
2 cup milk, divided
3 tablespoons flour

Melt butter in large Dutch Oven; add onion, celery and green pepper. Cook until tender, stirring frequently. Add potatoes, sausage, chicken broth, herbs, salt and pepper. Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 30 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Stir in 1-1/2 cups milk and stir. Then combine remaining 1/2 cup milk and flour, stirring until smooth and add to chowder. Simmer uncovered, stirring frequently, until slightly thickened. Simmer longer for more thickness, if preferred. Makes 1-1/2 quarts.

Any chowders or soup recipes to share?

    CHICKEN CHILI is the best. Or maybe CHICKEN CACCIATORE. Both are easy to make in the CROCK POT and so yummy!
