"A meal in itself. This recipe could easily be made meatless. I sometimes serve it over rice for a whole meal, or by itself as a hearty soup." — Adam Pack

Great recipe! I didn't thicken with flour, I added the beans without draining them, and gave it a quick whiz with a hand blender. Not too much just enough to break up a few of the beans to thicken the soup. I also added 2 handfuls of small shell pasta. I used chicken broth as well. My kids loved it! Will definately become a regular at our table!
This was not an enjoyable meal at all. It didn't look appetizing and the entire chowder had an off taste to it. I can't put my finger on what the odd flavor was but it wasn't good. I won't be making this again.
Excellent! A meal in itself! During the last 15 minutes of cooking, I added a cup of water-
This soup was delicious and very, very easy. I made it with turkey bacon to be more health conscious, and it tasted great. I sauteed the veggies in a little oil (as the turkey bacon yields no fat), added the flour after the water, and left the meat in the soup while it simmered. It tastes excellent with cooked rice - either over it, or added to it.
This is an outstanding chowder. I used Chicken Broth in place of the water but doubt it made much of a difference. I made it for a church soup dinner and of the 4 soups there it was the first one gone.
Love beans, but could not get past the bacon roux.
This recipe was great, also very easy. I used a little more flour than requested because I decided to leave all the bacon grease in because that is the best part. I also added two chopped jalepenos that gave it a very fresh, green flavor. All together the flavor was amazing and the broth/roux made the soup very thick. I recommend serving it with a hard french bread, either by pooring the soup over the bread or dipping in the soup. Amazing!
This is such a good chowder. My family just raved over it. I served it with cornbread. What a great comfort food. I too substituted chicken broth for the water. WOW!! Soooo delicious.
