Very good, and relatively easy to make. My wife found the leek taste a little overwhelming. We resolved that problem by deleting the water in step 2, and using 2 (8 oz.) bottles of clam juice instead. The taste is then wonderfully balanced.
Red potatoes work best. Leaving the peel on not only adds to the nutritional value of the chowder, but also adds visual appeal.
The hardest part of this recipe might be simply finding the leek soup mix (knorr brand) - there's really no substitute.
To make this a vegetarian dish, omit the bacon. Melt 3 TBSP of butter, heat until fragrant, then add the potatoes and carrots .
