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.
