This Chicken Cheddar Chowder is the kind of soup that makes you feel warm all over on chilly days. I don’t know about you, but when it is cold outside, there is nothing like a warm pot of soup cooking over the stove. It makes the whole house feel warm and smell amazing.
This chowder has bite sized pieces of chicken, diced tomatoes, corn, and peppers in a savory cheesy broth topped off with cheese and crumbled bacon. Another tasty family recipe from my sister in law Paige that we all loved, it was another major husband win. He is already asking me to make it again.
This soup is a great meal on its own, but also goes great with our homemade rolls, cheese bread, or my personal favorite- breadtwists.
