So rich and delicious!



Cook onion in butter until tender.Blend in flour. Add remaining ingredients except cheese.

Cook and stir until thick and bubbly. Reduce heat and add the cheese, stir to melt.

Simmer 15 minutes.

May add 1 cubed boiled potato and double the cheese for a thicker chowder. Try smoked Swiss cheese for a great smoky twang.

  • 1/3 cup plus 2 Tbsp. flour
  • 6 cups milk
  • 1 stick margarine or butter
  • 2 to 2 1/2 cups celery
  • 1 large onion
  • 1 large can diced tomatoes
  • Ad

  • 2 small or 1 large can sliced new potatoes
  • 1 can of whole kernel corn
  • 1/2 tsp. dill weed
  • 1 to 1 1/2 lb grated jack cheese
  • 1 large can solid white tuna


Saute celery and onion in butter until tender. Stir in flour and heat until bubbly. Stir in 3 cups milk and heat on medium heat until thickens. Lower the heat and add the other 3 cups milk and heat thoroughly. Add the rest of the ingredients except for the tuna. Heat real well, then add tuna. Once the tuna is hot, ENJOY!

Note: If you add the tuna before the cheese melts, you end up with a gooey mess of cheese and tuna that won't come apart in the soup, which might sound good, but it's not pleasant.

In a soup kettle, combine the reserved liquid from the green beans and carrots plus the water mixture. Add the ham, cabbage, onion, au gratin potato mix and milk. Bring to a boil and simmer for 30 minutes.

  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • onion
  • 2 cups grated cheese, like Velveeta
  • 4 cups milk
  • 1 cup frozen hash browns or cubed potatoes



In saucepan heat milk and cheese until cheese is melted. In another pan, brown ground beef and onion; drain. Add to milk mixture. Next add potatoes to mixture and simmer until potatoes are cooked. This is good with a can of corn added as well.

Cheezy Chowder

This is one of our family's favorite soup recipes. You can also substitute Velveeta for the cheese whiz, a large can of Veg-All for the frozen veggies, and frozen potatoes for the fresh. I've done it both ways. We also add cooked, diced chicken, as well. If it seems to thin, stir in a couple of Tbsp of cornstarch in the milk before adding to the soup to thicken it up. (10/05/2009)
