In my neck of the woods its still officially soup season, we’ve got snow on the ground (although the sun is actually shining today for the first time in like a week!) and temperatures in the 30s brrr so I love warming up with a big hot bowl of homemade soup!
This cheesy chicken chowder is perfectly hearty, creamy, cheesy, flavorful and so delicious! Its packed full of potatoes, corn, chicken broth (I used College Inn Chicken Broth from Walmart!) shredded chicken, cheese, and half and half.
Each bowl of soup should be topped with a heaping helping of shredded cheese, crumbled bacon, and sliced green onion to add extra crunch and flavor!
This soup is perfect to add to your winter soup rotation! You’ll love grabbing a big hearty bowl after a cold day playing in the snow, or heck even if you live in Southern California 😉 This is a delicious meal you’ll love feeding to your family and your whole family will love!
