I like to eat soup anytime. For me, I am satisfied with just soup. But my husband needs to have some kind of meat with it. (Allison’s note: my boyfriend is the same way – he says that soup alone isn’t manly enough!) Soup and a sandwich is a great lunch or supper. You could serve it with the Best BBQ Meatball sandwich.
I was looking for a recipe to make using a white wine. I needed a recipe for the wine trail event being held at the winery I work for. I called my friend Cathy, a great caterer with a good recipe for anything. She gave me this recipe for a potato and corn chowder. Last year she shared her Hearty Mushroom Soup with us. Thanks again, Cathy!
The soup uses ingredients that we usually have in our refrigerator and pantry. Make this recipe your own. If you like more potatoes or corn feel free to add more. It also would be great with some shredded cheddar cheese. A spicy sausage would also be great addition in the soup, too. Whatever floats your boat.
