  6. Now, this is what I am talking about. I will be preparing this one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks Dusty for sharing this delicious recipe.

  7. I did not put bacon on mine cause I did not have any but yup ... for sure bacon is good on anything .... he he .... Although I tend to try and use it sparingly ..... but we do have bacon now with less salt. and if you make it nice and crispy and blot out all the grease .... it can't be too bad for ya .... He he .

  8. Hey , You're welcome and it is tested and approved by me so it has got to be ok ... Actually I love it like chili says with more spice but you can add whatever you want .

    Oh, after you add the creamed corn and evaporated milk and cheese , make sure you turn the heat way down and watch that it does not stick on the bottom . stir often . Enjoy .

  9. Dusty,

    We have received 2 feet of snow. I wanted to fix something that says winter, warmth and good. So, I pulled up this Vegetable Chowder and prepared it. The only thing I have to say about this recipe is "DELICIOUS" This was the best chowder recipe I have tasted yet. It was filling and I had two bowls with crackers hehe. The next time I fix this which will be this coming week, I will be doubling the recipe. I had this without the bacon as I don't eat pork and it was still delicious. Thank you so much for sharing this delicious and warming recipe. I have saved this in my "Recipes to keep" folder on my computer.

    Thanks again,

  10. Sorry , I just saw this today .. Wow 2 feet .... You guys sure are getting pumelled . We have not had any snow yet . this is really unusual for us .

    Yes I like this soup as it is quick and easy and very tasty and I did not put the bacon on it . I saw a soup today that I would like to try . It's from Rachel Ray and it's a savoy cabbage soup so I will go to the food chanel web site and see if I can find it . It didn't take her long to make it .
